Southern Way 55

I have recently finished a proofread for Crecy Publishing on ‘Southern Way 55’, the latest edition of the ‘bookazine’ looking at all aspects of the Southern Railway (SR), the pre-grouping SR system and what has happened since 1948. SW55 featured two large articles, the first about the development of the railways through Dulwich and a second about the extra trains that were run during each Christmas period from 1952 to 1969 on the Southern Region, in order to deal with the festive period mail traffic. A timely reminder of how things were prior to the current electronic communication age and a peep into the organising that had to be carried out to enable the mail involved to reach their respective destinations on time.
