book inquiry : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

While doing a book search, I came across an interesting title:

Pullman Cars on the "Southern", 1875-1972 R.W. Kidner, author.

Is anyone familiar with the book? Assuming that is covers Southern RR, what is it like?

If anyone has a copy of Barger's "A Century of Pullman Cars, Vol. 2" that they would like to sell, please let me know.

R. W. Kidner is/was an English author of railway history books. The book you cite, PULLMAN CARS OF THE SOUTHERN, refers to the Southern Railway of England (1924-1948) which operated Pullman parlor cars south and southwest of London, England.
