Join Rex Conway on a remarkable steam-hauled journey on the Southern Region.
Starting in the capital during the golden age of steam, we encounter places such as Clapham, Reading, Basingstoke, Eastleigh, Southampton, Salisbury and Weymouth before heading down towards Devon and Cornwall.
There are many diversions along the way, not least of which a jaunt around the Isle of Wight. Seen here are plentiful images of engine sheds, stations, signal-boxes, and a fabulous selection of engines and railway staff going about their daily business. All the photographs featured in this book have been specially selected from Rex Conway's phenomenal collection of over 65,000 images and the book is sure to appeal to railway enthusiasts far and wide.
