The 2-6-0 Mogul steam locomotives were designed by Richard Maunsell for passenger duties on the Southern Railway, and they were used mainly on cross-country and semi-fast expresses. Able to operate over most of the Southern Railway network after grouping in 1923, the sturdy 2-6-0 Moguls survived until 1966, when all had been withdrawn from service. The author looks in detail at the design, development and working lives of these reliable and economical engines. The book also includes the locomotives purchased for operation in Ireland and on the Metropolitan Railway. Packed with photographs of the locomotives in both colour and mono together with detailed design drawings, this new book will be ideal for modellers of the class. It is also an essential work of reference for the growing band of Southern Railway followers.
