Maunsell’s SR Steam Carriage Stock

Author : David Gould
ISBN : 9780853615552
Cover : paperback
Price : £9.95

This book was first published in 1978, reprinted in 1981 and a new edition was published in 1990. Interest in Maunsell carriages continues to grow, so this third enlarged edition is long overdue.

The book has proved to be an invaluable reference for the railway historian and modeller alike. It describes in some detail all steam-hauled carriages built by the Southern Railway between 1923 and 1936 and attempts to trace their history right through to their withdrawal or, in a few cases, preservation, special attention being given to the formation of set trains and their workings. Although the Southern Railway designed no new non-corridor steam passenger stock it did rebuild a large amount of ex-London & South Western compartment stock, the lengthened bodies of which were mounted on new standard 58 ft underframes. These have been added for this edition.

A5 format, 152 pages, more than 60 illustrations.
