Southern Branch Lines
- Southern Branch Lines, 1955-1965
- Southern Branch Lines were some of the most picturesque in the British Isles, passing through woodlands, over downs and to holiday seaside resorts. In spite of the Southern Railways electrification policy, the Southern Branch line was the one place where steam could be seen with a variety of motive power before the coming of the diesel multiple units. Green was the prominent colour on the Southern, on the stations, the coaches, the locomotive and even in the countryside around. Many Southern Branch Line trains were steam hauled long into the 50s and early 60s and the scenes in this book show this in the final years of steam power.
- The author has tried to show through his photographs, the peaceful rural atmosphere which was characteristic of the Southern Branch Line.
