Signalling & Signal Boxes along the LSWR Routes


The LSWR was quite different to the other southern railways in that it covered not only Home Counties suburban traffic, but also the long reach out to Cornwall in competition with the Great Western Railway. The destination of Plymouth was jointly reached with the GWR, and this was to be the scene of a number of races between the two companies. Ocean liners would call at Plymouth to dispatch mail, bullion and passengers who needed to save half a day by alighting at Plymouth. Later on, transatlantic traffic was centred on Southampton, which meant that the LSWR, in the guise of the Southern Railway, finally won against the GWR. In this volume, Allen Jackson explores this history and more, bringing it to life with a thorough collection of photographs and a wealth of technical detail.
