Unique to the Southern Railway and later the Southern Region were
the three electric 'Booster' locomotives - CC1, CC2 and 20003.
Their story was touched upon in the Preview Issue of Southern Way,
but now we can at last describe the full history and operation of
these engines over their 25 years of service. Authors Simon Lilley
and John Weynon have between them vast experience in both
historical research and electrical engineering. Between them they
are ideally placed to chronicle the design, building and operation
of these engines and which in some ways were far ahead of their
time. The trials and tribulations of their operation, from labour
relations to incidents in service, are also chronicled. The highly
readable text incorporates many new and fascinating photographs.
