In volume two of his minutely researched new history of the Southern Electric, David Brown describes the main line electrification schemes of the 1930s and provides highly detailed descriptions of the rolling stock built for them, including the famous Brighton Belle. The story of the electrified network through World War Two and the British Railways era to 1983 is then covered, including new rolling stock and departmental conversions introduced during this period. The book is comprehensively illustrated with approximately 150 photographs.
