A History of the Southern Railway
Available in Stock
The Southern Railway was formed in 1923, an amalgamation of three companies. This meticulously detailed study by the veteran railway historian Colin Maggs traces the history of the three main companies and smaller railways, such as the Isle of Wight Railways and the London, Chatham Dover Railway. It also describes and illustrates, with around 100 period photographs, the locomotives and rolling stock, and covers topics such as major accidents and the railways’ cross-Channel shipping enterprises.
