9780711027916: The Heyday of Stewarts Lane and Its Locomotives

For many generations of railwaymen and railway enthusiasts, the name of Stewarts Lane was synonymous with the southern approaches to Victoria. The shed's allocation of steam locomotives was one of the biggest on the Southern and its duties covered the mundane to the prestigious; it was at Stewarts Lane, for example, that the locomotives for the Southern's famous Anglo-French express, the 'Goldon Arrow', were based. The origins of this famous shed date back to the early 1860s when the London; however, with changing traffic patterns and with the gradual decline of freight, the shed's usefulness diminished and, today, the facilities at Stewarts Lane are but a pale shadow of those extant in the age of steam. For many, just as Stewarts Lane was synonymous with the Southern so the photographer R C Riley was synonymous with its recording. From the early 1950s onwards - when the shed played host of the Southern Region's allocation of the newly introduced 'Britannia' class Pacifics - right through to its effective closure as a locomotive shed, Dick Riley has been recording the shed and its locomotives. Drawing upon his own extensive collection of colour from the early 1950s, supplemented by work by others, most notably the late Kenneth Whiteman, the author records the final years of steam operations at Stewarts Lane and of the duties undertaken by the shed's locomotives on the main line.
