Southern Steam Days Remembered III
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.
