South Eastern Railway

Regular price £20.00

The South Eastern Railway was built as part of a highway from London to Paris, and then developed to serve Kent, Surrey, Sussex and even Berkshire. It was a railway whose history is filled with unusual and intriguing personalities, romantic incidents and much corruption. In this first full and comprehensive history of the SER, Mr Gray unravels the visions and jealousies that made the story of this important railway. He chronicles the construction of the various lines, details the various personalities - as diverse as Charles Dickens and the Emperor Napoleon III - and describes in detail famous incidents such as the Staplehurst Disaster and the Gold Bullion Robbery.

Hardback, 320 pages, black & white photographs, maps, other details of local history

ISBN: 9780906520857
