WITH ITS BEAUTIFUL LOCOMOTIVES AND DISTINCTIVE CARRIAGES, THE SE&CR WENT FROM BEING THE SUBJECT OF JOKES TO A GLAMOROUS WAY TO GET TO THE CONTINENT
The formation of the SE&CR in 1899 ended the long dispute between the South Eastern Railway and the London Chatham & Dover Railway. Harry Smith Wainwright was appointed as Locomotive, Carriage & Wagon Superintendent and over the following 14 years, he and his team at Ashford produced locomotive designs that looked like works of art but were still practical, functional and popular with footplate crews.
Following Wainwright’s retirement in 1913, Richard Maunsell was appointed Chief Mechanical Engineer. With steep gradients, a tight loading gauge, and low axle loading, the SE&CR network provided a challenge to any locomotive designer. The SE&CR became part of the Southern Railway in 1923.
