Other ABC Publications relevant to the Southern Railway

The Ian Allan ABC range of publications was not just limited to the traditional number stock books and over a period of time a number of different topics were covered and published under the ABC brand as detailed below.  This is probably not a complete list but contains those publications that I am either aware of, or have within my collection.

Southern Locomotive Spotting Chart

This is only example of this type of chart that I have seen, it is not actually dated but from the reference located within the print code and the number of Merchant Navy and Light Pacifics introduced, it must have been printed during 1947.  Compiled by Frank H.A. Burridge and is an illustrated, complete list of all the named locomotives of the Southern Railway with columns to fill in the place first seen and the date.

Titans of the Track

Published in July 1946 this booklet contains a range of locomotive photographs from around the UK.  Southern Locomotives include West Country "Salisbury", King Arthur Sir Mador de la Porte, Merchany Navies Channel Packet and Bibby Line, a Wainwright D class, a Drummond D15 and rather oddly a two coach LBSC overhead ac electric set.
