The transport of goods by train remained an important part of railway operation well into the 1960s. As such, railway owned and operated road vehicles were a familiar sight, though the individual and distinctive company colours were replaced by a standard crimson and cream livery similar to those previously carried by passenger rolling stock.

However, with the exception of GWR, scant attention has been paid in the past to this area of railway infrastructure due to lack of material on the subject. Within this new book, accomplished authors Bruce Murray and Kevin Robertson uncover a whole new dimension to literature published on the Southern Region.

With unprecedented access to a previously unpublished collection of SR views and vistas, this lovely book will delight railway enthusiasts with rare scenes showing both rigid and articulated vehicles, including the famous 'Scammels', posed both on the roadside and within railway yards.

These illustrations are beautifully complimented by first-hand accounts from Fred Emery, a former Southern Region Road Vehicle Inspector, whose entertaining anecdotes bring this story of life. A must-have read for all keen SR enthusiasts!
