Southern Railway Gallery is the first volume in a new series of picture books, designed to be of interest to railway historians and modelers. The series subjects are themed to include an interesting mixture of useful historic illustrations, depicting locomotives, rolling stock and infrastructure.

Southern Railway Gallery covers the history of the Southern Railway from its beginnings in 1923, to nationalization in 1948, covering most aspects of its fascinating history and operations. The book looks at aspects of the Southern from the early years in the early 1920s, when the company had old worn-out stock on many of its lines, through to the introduction of new modern rolling stock and the electrification of much of its network in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and parts of Hampshire.

The company operated an extensive rail and bus network on the Isle of Wight, which covered the whole island and is well remembered to this day.

Although the Southern introduced a number of modern new steam classes, its main goal was to electrify as much of the network as possible, however this did not preclude the company from introducing two classes of successful Pacific type locomotives in the 1940s.

The company owned and operated docks and harbors throughout its existence, having an extensive fleet of ferries and cargo vessels, some of which served with the Royal Navy in the Second World War as hospital ships. The Southern, also operated bus and road services, which covered many areas not served by a local railway station on the system.

The Southern Railway ceased to exist at midnight on 31 December 1947, after a remarkable existence of twenty-four years.
