Southern Way 56

A proofreading assignment that is becoming a regular role for me is that carried out on the ‘Southern Way’ quarterly magazine. This publication is made up of articles about various aspects of the former Southern Railway, the pre-1923 railway companies, and the post-1948 system, both nationalised and privatised. I recently worked on edition 56 (‘SW56’), which covered subjects as varied as a history of the now-closed Dyke branch line and the railcars that frequented it , to the PEP electric multiple units of the early 1970s, prototype trains that led to a whole family of production vehicles, the last of which still run in the south-east part of the former SR’s territory. In conclusion, another useful volume of SR history, adding to the knowledge of many an enthusiast.
