The name Gordon Weddell has been synonymous with the detailed history of the carriage stock of the London & South Western Railway for many years. Following on from his LSWR Carriages, Volume 1, which described the development of passenger carriages in the 19th Century, and LSWR Carriages in the 20th Century, this volume contains detailed information about passenger luggage vans, Post Office vans, ambulance carriages, horseboxes and carriage trucks.
It covers the lifetime of the London & South Western and beyond, from vehicles built by the company through to those built to its designs by the Southern Railway. A number of coach conversions and vans lasted well into the second half of the twentieth century, including examples that ended their days as grounded bodies at various locations.
Incorporating many highly detailed 4mm scale drawings, LSWR Carriages, Volume 3 comprises numerous contemporary photographs, together with detailed information including build dates,renumbering, and disposal details for all non-passenger carriage stock.
