The Southern Railway (SR) was established in the 1923 Grouping. It linked London with the Channel Ports, South West England, the South Coast Resorts and kent. The railway was formed by the amalgamation of several smaller railway companies, the largest of which were the London & South Western Railway (LSWR), the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway (LBSC) and the South Eastern and Chatham Railway (SECR). The construction of what was to become the Southern Railway began in 1838 with the opening of the London and Southampton Railway.
With only 2,186 miles (3,518 km) of track, the Southern Railway was the smallest of the "Big Four" railway companies. Unlike the others, the majority of its revenue came from passengers rather than freight. It created what was at that time the world's largest electrified railway system and the first electrified InterCity route (London to Brighton) The two Chief Mechanical Engineers - Richard Maunsell between 1923 and 1937 and Oliver Bulleid from 1937 to 1948 - both designed new locomotives and rolling stock to replace much of that which was inherited in 1923. The Southern Railway played a vital role in WWII
, embarking the British Expeditionary Force and during the Dunkirk operations. Because the railway was primarily a passenger network, its success was an even more remarkable achievement.

The Southern Railway operated a number of famous trains, including the Brighton Belle, the Bournemouth Belle, the Golden Arrow and the Night Ferry (London - Paris and Brussels). The West Country services were dominated by lucrative summer holiday traffic and included named trains such as the Atlantic Coast Express and the Devon Belle. The company's best-known livery was highly distinctive: locomotives and carriages were painted in a bright Malachite Green above plain black frames, with bold, bright yellow lettering.
