In this volume of previously unpublished photographs, David Reed takes the reader on a journey around the Southern Region.
The Waterloo–Bournemouth and Weymouth line features with Woking, Basingstoke and the New Forest, together with the south coast ‘Coastway’ route between Portsmouth, Brighton and Hastings, including a brief hop over to the Isle of Wight. There are also photographs taken on the Waterloo–Reading line, and the Alton–Winchester and Swanage lines before they closed. A variety of elderly 1930s and at the time modern 1960s electric locomotives, electric trains and diesel multiple units and locos are pictured in various liveries, none of which remain in service.
