The Southern Railway was the smallest of the four companies formed in 1923. However, it caried the largest passenger tarffic of all with its enormous suburban system, which was rapidly electrified.

By contrast, its rural branches, which proliferated all along the South coast of England and the main lines from which they sprang, were worked by a wide variety of steam locomotives right up to the end of main line steam.

Many of these branches survive today, forming the basis of numerous preserved railways and the rich variety of Southern steam locomotion is still well represented.
