Southern Steam Loco Reference 1960s

This page lists the steam locomotive classes built for the Southern Railways and its predecessors which survived into the 1960s. The list does not include classes of locomotives that were completely withdrawn from service before 1960, "foreign" locomotives that ran on the Southern region during the 1960s, nor locomotive classes introduced after nationalization. In addition only those locomotives in normal service with British Railways (Southern Region) are considered, those locomotives which had already been set aside for preservation are also not included in this reference. The number in class column lists both the number originally built (or rebuilt) followed by the number still in service at the start of 1960. Where a class is a rebuild of a previous class the CME who built the class on which the rebuild was based is shown first (in italics).

Steam services were fully withdrawn from British Railways (Southern Region) on 9th July 1967.

(*) The other 82 of the Beattie Well Tank locomotives were withdrawn from service in 1899 so the remaining three outlasted the rest of the class by well over sixty years. These three locomotives underwent a number of rebuilds by Drummond, Urie, and Maunsell resulting in their appearance changing quite dramatically over the years.
