The locomotives are mostly the Southern`s own Class 33 "Cromptons" and the Class 73 "ED", though by this date other region locos were showing their faces more and more and this is represented by the Class 47 "Brush" and the Class 56 on an aggregate train.
Some parts of the layout may have changed but the general station layout should be ok if it was remodelled in 1909.
With a total of 269 trains to handle, the signalman is kept busy! electric multiple units, while loco-hauled traffic are handled by BRCW Class 33 diesels and Class 73 Electro-Diesels A welcome addition for this popular simulation, this timetable goes back to Coronation year.
The frequent Southern Electric service was formed of an earlier generation of stock dating back to the thirties.
Many classes of engines could be seen, hauling coaches packed with families from the cities of the Midlands and North distant parts of Britain heading for their holiday on the south coast.
They also strayed onto 4-VEP workings, not only on Coastway services but to London as well!
All were replaced by 4-VEP's by December, 4-VEP's also strayed onto 4-CAP workings, but the scheduled type is given in this timetable.
The one thing I have endeavoured to do is to show all servicesfor the year in question.
That brings me to the Basingstoke - Alton Light Railway, opened in 1901, closed in 1917, surprisingly reopened 1924, but finally closed to passengers 1932. The Branch line diverged just to the west of the Basingstoke West Box and in 1909 had 6 passenger services each way plus 3 goods services.
