Southern Rolling Stock In Colour

Southern Rolling Stock In Colour

Regular price £17.95

This is the third volume in Mike King’s acclaimed ‘Rolling Stock in Colour’ series, focussing on freight as well as passenger vehicles. The author’s pedigree as the expert on Southern rolling stock is widely acknowledged and this new book will only add to his reputation as a railway historian. The 200 or so images in this latest volume are new and nearly all previously unpublished views of Southern carriages, vans and wagons and remarkably, all the images are in colour (dating as far back as the 1930s). Just as impressive is the variety of photographs – from pre-grouping stock that survived into the 1950s and 1960s to Southern-built vehicles. Milk tanks feature in detail for the first time as well as horse boxes, ballast wagons and even a locomotive tender still lettered ‘Southern’. The author’s caption detail is also unsurpassed; the images in Southern Rolling Stock in Colour are supported by over 40,000 words of comprehensive text about the building, history and use of these vehicles. Owners covered in Southern Rolling Stock in Colour include London and South Western Railway, London Brighton & South Coast Railway, South Eastern Railway, Southern Railway and Pullman stock; whilst liveries include ‘Southern Green’, various British Railways schemes and engineer’s paint styles. So, if you thought you knew everything there was to know about Southern rolling stock, stand by for a few surprises…
