SHOPSOILED COPY - See Sample Image for details. (also available as New Copy). The industrial locomotives of South Western England were first documented by the Industrial Railway Society in its “Pocket Book B”, published in 1968. In 1976 I attempted to upgrade the publication to the format of a Handbook by updating the locomotive information and introducing some descriptive and historical notes. National Grid references, details of some lines not worked by locomotives and some maps. This increased the size of the work so that the geographical area of the old Book B was to be dealt with in 2 sections. The first section included the south-western counties of England. The information relating to each county is set out in 4 sections as follows:- 1 – Industrial locations where privately owned locomotives were used 2 – Known details of civil engineering contracts using locomotives, including contracts involving the construction of many sections of public railway. 3 – Preservation and pleasure railway locations where the gauge exceeds 1ft 3in. 4 – Known details of non-locomotive worked systems which were of sufficient length to be of interest.
