LSWR Carriages, Volume 3: Non-Passenger Carriage Stock

Regular price £28.00

The name Gordon Weddell has been synonymous with the detailed history of the carriage stock of the London & South Western Railway for many years. Following on from his LSWR Carriages, Volume 1, which described the development of passenger carriages in the 19th Century, and LSWR Carriages in the 20th Century, this volume contains detailed information about passenger luggage vans, Post Office vans, ambulance carriages, horseboxes and carriage trucks. 

It covers the lifetime of the London & South Western and beyond, from vehicles built by the company through to those built to its designs by the Southern Railway. A number of coach conversions and vans lasted well into the second half of the twentieth century, including examples that ended their days as grounded bodies at various locations.

Incorporating many highly detailed 4mm scale drawings, LSWR Carriages, Volume 3 comprises numerous contemporary photographs, together with detailed information including build dates, renumbering, and disposal details for all non-passenger carriage stock.

All orders over £20.00 are post free to all UK addresses. For orders of £20 or less, a £1.50 postage fee will be added. These are normally sent via Royal Mail 48 Hour (the business equivalent of 2nd class mail) which is not tracked. If you require tracking for your, tracking options are available for a small fee. If the service that you require is not shown, please get in touch with us and we can quote for your desired service.

Large, bulky or high value orders may be split in to multiple consignments or sent via courier. There is no additional charge for this and you will be advised at the order fulfillment stage if this happens.


Overseas orders are charged based on weight, and postage will be automatically calculated at checkout. For a postage quotation, please add the items you want to your cart and proceed to the checkout. All orders are usually sent via Air Mail - this is not tracked. If you required your order to be tracked or sent by a different service, please contact us, preferably before checkout.

Royal Mail will only accept parcels up to 5kg in weight (2kg for Canada). If you are ordering multiple items that exceed these limits, please contact us first so that we can advise you of the appropriate shipping rate.

Due to the high volume of parcels going missing, we are no longer able to send untracked orders via third party mail handling services such as Parcel Motel. We are able to send untracked parcels to bona fide PO Box addresses, friends and family members and to work addresses.

Some countries charge import taxes and we suggest that in these cases, you asked for your order to be tracked so the local taxation authorities can trace your parcel.
