Steam Around Basingstoke and Salisbury

Availability: In stock

Author: Charlie Verrall

Basingstoke and Salisbury are important rail centres on what was originally the London & South Western Railway, and later the Southern Railway and finally the South Western Section of the Southern Region.

Basingstoke is where the main lines from Waterloo diverge, to Southampton, Bournemouth and Weymouth, and to Exeter and the West of England. Basingstoke also acts as an interface between the former Southern and Western Regions for inter-regional passenger and freight traffic.

Rather like Basingstoke, Salisbury acts as an interchange point, not only with the Western Region passenger and freight services via Westbury, but also cross-country services from Portsmouth and Brighton, the majority either going onto destinations on the Western region.

This book contains, in chronological order, fascinating photographs of steam-hauled services and individual locomotives taken at these locations, supplemented by some others from elsewhere on the LSWR mainlines. These rare images range from between 1956 and 1965, the majority of which have not previously appeared in print.
