LTS001: Peter Kay's History of the LT&SR Volume 1 1836-1893.

NEW NOVEMBER 2020.  Our member Peter Kay has recently published the final volume, No. 8, of his history of the LT&SR (The London, Tilbury & Southend Railway – a history of the company and line; ISBN 9781899890521).

In it, he notes, on page 681, that there are a number of his books that deal with parts of the history of the LT&SR which are currently out of print. These are:

The London, Tilbury & Southend Railway - a history of the company and line, volume 1: 1863-1893.
The London, Tilbury & Southend Railway - a history of the company and line, volume 2: 1893-1912.
The Thames Haven Railway - Essex branch line and London shipping link, 1835-1996.
The Corringham Light Railway - a new history.
London, Tilbury & Southend Railway Signalling - including the Midland, LMS and BR periods.

The GERS are making these items available in digital format for those who have missed the opportunity to obtain them in print or wish to consult them on their computer. Furthermore, the digital copies have an advantage over the print version in that they are quickly searchable. Our thanks are due to Peter for his willing agreement that we might do this, and to Bill King for arranging it and scanning them all.

This is the first item in the list of the out of print books and is the first volume in the author’s multi-part history. It deals with the period between 1836 and 1893. An overall introduction to the geographical area served by the line and its history is provided. When originally published in 1996, it was not envisaged that the work would extend to eight volumes and this book provides an overview of a number of locations together with the detailed history between the two noted dates. The work of the GER and the L&BR in the promotion of the line is described together with the work of Robert Stephenson, George Parker Bidder and Thomas Brassey in the engineering and construction works. These three men went on to operate the lines as lessees until they were no longer able, for one reason or another. The book is copiously illustrated with maps, plans and images, although only a limited number of the latter date from the early days of the line, simply because they are unavailable.

Copyright of the content remains with the author, Peter Kay.
