The Southern Railway was the smallest of the "Big Four" but its locomotives could hold their own against anything on the other three and in some cases certainly out-perform them. This video shows them in action from film shot by Jim Oatway in 1961 and 1962 when although Bulleid Pacifics were the main players on the Southern scene, after all there were 140 of them, the last of the Lord Nelsons, King Arthurs and Schools were still at work.

We see them on the ex-LSWR route out of Waterloo on weekdays and summer Saturdays, on expresses and Basingstoke semi-fasts. Alongside this action, freight to and from Feltham and Nine Elms yards was worked by Maunsell S15's, Bulleid Q1's and the inevitable U and N class Moguls.

A visit to Feltham shed shows us in great detail the massive H16, G16 and W class heavy tank locos, not just a glimpse but long detailed views you can appreciate.

The rural charm of the Hayling Island Branch and workings on the Isle-of-Wight in 1962 at Ryde lead into never to be repeated scenes of Haywards Heath when the famous "Bluebelle" specials ran with preserved motive power on the main line using locos T9 No.120, Caley Single No.123, "Birch Grove" and the Adams Radial No.488.
