The locomotives are mostly the Southern`s own Class 33 "Cromptons" and the Class 73 "ED", though by this date other region locos were showing their faces more and more and this is represented by the Class 47 "Brush" and the Class 56 on an aggregate train.
Some parts of the layout may have changed but the general station layout should be ok if it was remodelled in 1909.
The earliest timetable for Barnham produced so far!
Back to a era of pure steam only, the timetable is compiled from platform working and signal box documents for Barnham and Ford with locomotives allocated from information of the era.
They also strayed onto 4-VEP workings, not only on Coastway services but to London as well!
The stock in use at the time for the passengers was the Southern Region 1963 stock, VEPs, CEPs, BIGs etc., in 4, 8 or 12 car formations.Pigeon specials were also a regular feature of summer Saturdays and these too are included in this fascinating timetable. Smart working is required to turn round trains and forward planning is needed due to the restricted movements possible. Another excellent timetable for this popular Heritage simulation.Based on the working timetable for Weekdays in 1951, it contains 180 trains, all steam-hauled of course.In most cases, expresses heading southwards to Bournemouth over the steeply-graded S&D line required double heading.
