... The operator of the line is Southern and although the train operator has changed numerous times over the last 20 years I have to admit that I have been fairly impressed with what I have experienced over the last month of travelling up into Central London.

Southern Railway (Miscellany) - Kevin Robertson

Although the Southern Railway existed for only a relatively short period, from the ... more

Grouping in 1923 through to Nationalisation,
during that 25-year period it created a strong
identity both among the travelling public and
among its staff. While much of the infrastructure
and equipment used by the SR was inherited from
the three constituent pre-Grouping companies and
survived to Nationalisation, the SR was innovative
in many ways, from its widespread adoption of
third-rail electrification and its use of concrete
through to its locomotive design (particularly
under Bulleid). For the modeller obtaining
photographic information is an essential part of
gathering material to help construct the most
realistic models. While there is a considerable
amount of material published on locomotives, the
quality of information on other topics - station
design, train formation, platform furniture,
rolling stock, freight facilities - tends to be
much more variable. The OPC 'Miscellany' series
was designed to circumvent this weakness, by
producing a range of high quality, heavily
illustrated books on individual railway companies,
providing modellers and historians with an
excellent photographic record of the individual
railway company and its many and varied
operations. This new addition to a popular series
features the Southern Railway between 1923 and
1948. Drawing upon some 250 mono photographs,
Kevin Robertson examines in depth the railway and
those aspects of the Southern that helped to make
it readily identifiable to enthusiasts and
modellers.

To Southampton, But Not Beyond!

AdvantagesDecent, clean and modern trains.

DisadvantagesHigh fares outside the M25 boundary.

"...operator of the line is Southern and although the train operator has changed numerous times over the last 20 years I have to admit that I have been fairly impressed with what I have experienced over the last month of travelling up into Central London.
