Loco list


 The following images of locos have appeared in print, some locos appear twice with different dates/trains etc.

The inclusion of N class is somewhat surprising as the collective narative is that they did not work in the Salisbury- Bournemouth area.

This list is not comprehensive and will be constantly amended.


In the 50s, as the Kent Coast electrification continued, increasing numbers of SR 4-4-0s found themselves allocated to central division depots.
