Alan Postlethwaite's second survey of the neglected aspects of the Southern railway builds on the success and originality of his first volume. This fresh collection of unusual facts and photographs of the Southern records, and celebrates, the trackside buildings, engineering structures, decoration and artwork, ticketing and paperwork, signs and advertising of a remarkable transport system. His book will be necessary reading for all railway enthusiasts and a valuable record for those who have a special interest in the history of the region. While many of the pictures include steam, the focus is on those peripheral items of the railway that are so often glossed over in publications devoted to trains and locomotion. Chapters describe station frontages, platform canopies, country stations, halts and closed stations. Also included are huts, sheds, yards, tunnels, bridges, signals, signal-boxes, posters and signs, and there is a section on coaches, old and new. Full captions date and describe the subject matter and set it in context, and references are provided for further reading. More Odd Corners of the Southern will be invaluable to preservationists, modellers and historians of the Southern, and it will be a lively read for the general railway enthusiast.
