Southern Railway System Steam Power : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

I would like to abtain a roster of the Southern's Steam Locomotive Roster. I had one for many years that was incorporated in an old copy of the BLE's Agreement with The Southern Railway System, but it has disappeared over years since my retirement.

There is a very complete steam roster in Richard Prince's book, "Southern Railway Steam Locomotives and Boats." A second edition was announced a few years ago and used copies show up from time to time at model railraoding flea markets or in ads in Trains or Model Railroader. I seem to recall a roster in Lowe & Ranks book as well.

It might also be possible to get a photocopy of the roster from one of these books.

Look under "Equipment" on the home page here, then check Steam Locomotives. I haven't done a comparison to see how complete this list might be, but it's easily accessible.
