Diesels and Electrics in London and the South East
The railway lines of London and the South East include tracks from all four of the constituent companies that made up British Railways and subsequently became the Eastern, Midland, Southern and Western regions. Each region took a separate approach when diesels and electrics replaced steam in the 1950s and 1960s.

In June 1986 Network South East was launched to collectively market passenger services throughout this area, with a distinctive livery applied to locomotives, rolling stock and stations. This lasted until privatisation in 1996. Since then, a variety of companies have held franchises for particular areas.

This book features a selection of diesel and electric locomotives in an area of some 50-60 miles from the capital, over a period beginning in the 1970s. It takes the form of visiting the lines from each of the main London termini, showing a typical selection of the freight and passenger workings to be seen.
