Southern Steam Days Remembered IV

Regular price £34.95 £0.00 Unit price per

The success of the first volume which has now sold out has sent us back into the archive to publish another fine collection of colour photographs from the 1950s and 1960s around the Southern. Along with the usual selection of Bulleids we can enjoy a wide range of Standards, Maunsell designs along with many of the surviving locomotives from the pre-grouping companies. Some of the fascinating specials are seen in addition, which brought further engines somewhat alien to the Southern Region in the days of regular steam.

The author as a real fan of Southern steam has located some absolute classic views to ensure this volume will be a real favourite.

Chapters include:

  • Back to School Days
  • Branches and Byways
  • Names of Distinction
  • Southern Specials
  • Shed & Works Visits
  • Isle of Wight Sunset
  • Up and Down the Links

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.

Please note that courier services are unable to deliver to PO Box addresses. If you usually use a PO Box address, you will need to supply an alternative address if you require shipping by courier.
