Steam Locomotive Performance – on Somerset & Dorset and Wessex Lines


In stock

Categories: ,


The late Tony Davies, who was a long-time S&DRT member, used to travel down to the S&D on overnight services from the north and, a few years ago, had a long-running S&D Locomotive Performance series in our quarterly magazine.

Well, his running logs coverage didn’t stop at the S&D and he obtained similar logs from other lines in Wessex; the Midland & South Western Junction plus the Didcot, Newbury & Southampton and the ‘other’ S&DJR, the Salisbury & Dorset Junction Railway.

This book – 108 pages in A5 size and published by the Trust – presents all of these logs in Tony’s usual very readable style, accompanied by a selection of photographs. The S&D occupies roughly the first half of the book with the other three lines taking the remaining space.
