"Southern Branch Lines were some of the most picturesque in the British Isles, passing over woodlands, over downs and to holiday se aside resorts. In spite of the Southern Railway's 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 p r o m i n e n t c olour of 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 t he f in al y ea rs of steam power."
