The London, Brighton and South Coast Railway
- The London, Brighton and South Coast Railway
- by C.Hamilton-Ellis
- The London, Brighton & South Coast was not a large railway, but it carried nearly four times as many passengers as the Canadian Pacific. It was not a fast railway, yet it produced a brillant speed record.
- It was full of paradox, an endearing characterisitic. It had its faults, but it had four essential qualities: it was well engineered, and throughout living memory it had a good Locomotive Department, exemplary signals and telegraphs, and an esprit de coprs second to none in the railway world.
- Hamilton Ellis, who knew it well in its latter days, writes appreciatively of its good points and tolerantly of its foibles.
