Ron Buckley s evocative photographs reveal the changing scene of the Southern Railway, illustrating from the later 1930s those regrouping classes that were still working. These included the work of such well-known designers as Dugald Drummond and Robert Urie of the London and South Western Railway, the Billingtons and Earle Marsh of the London Brighton and South Coast Railway, and Harry Wainwright and Richard Maunsell of the South Eastern and Chatham Railway. Ron s later photographs, from 1946 onwards, continue to show remaining working pre-grouping locomotives and also portray the newer Oliver Bulleid-designed Pacifics introduced during 1941. Visits to the Isle of Wight during the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s enabled him to capture images of almost the entire fleet of locomotives working there during those four decades."
