Derek Cross was one of a group of outstanding railway photographers, who mostly took pictures during the steam and early modern traction era, 1950s and 1960s.

David Cross his son, has inherited his extensive collection of black & white and colour material, which has many unpublished images. This book covers the Southern from the last days of the Southern Railway through to British Railways days in the mid 1960s, when steam was on the way out.

This is the first book that covers the Derek Cross Southern photographs, which date from the late 1940s through to the end of Southern Region steam and as such, features some very rare locations, unusual liveries and long extinct classes of locomotive.

The author has carefully selected some rare and unusual pictures for this volume, which will be of interest and use to both railway historians and modellers.

About David Cross

David Cross is the son of the late Derek Cross, who was well known as a great railway photographer. David has had an interesting career in the shipping and container industry and also lived and worked abroad at times in his career and life. He often accompanied his father on railway photographic trips when he was very young and caught the railway bug, which has led to a life long passion for trains and railways. He lives in Essex, where he still pursues his great passion for railways and photography. This volume largely taken from his fathers' work is his latest offering.
