Ron Buckleys evocative photographs reveal the changing scene of the Southern Railway - illustrating from the 1930s onwards those pre-grouping classes that were still working. These included the work of such well-known designers as Dugald Drummond and Robert Urie of the London & South Western Railway - the Billintons and Earle Marsh of the London - Brighton & South Coast Railway - and Harry Wainwright and Richard Maunsell of the South Eastern & Chatham Railway.Rons later photographs - from 1946 onwards - continue to show remaining working pre-grouping locomotives and also portray the newer Oliver Bulleid-designed Pacifics introduced in 1941.

He joined the London - Midland - Scottish Railway as a wages clerk in 1934 and retired in 1977 after over forty-two years service with the railways. Brian Dickson worked in publishing for over thirty-five years.
