Rex Conway's first book, Rex Conway's Steam Album, was a wonderful miscellany of images that introduced a remarkable archive of railway photographs. This book takes the reader on a steam-hauled journey on the Southern Region, taking in places such as Waterloo, Basingstoke, Southampton, Bournemouth, Weymouth, Salisbury, and Exeter before heading into Cornwall, with many diversions along the way. This is the third in a series that will explore each of the BR regions. The companion volume, Rex Conway's Midland Steam Journey Volume Two is due to be published in 2011. All the photographs featured in this book have been specially selected from Rex's phenomenal collection of more than 65,000 images and the book is sure to appeal to railway enthusiasts far and wide.
