Description:
Below are the names and numbers of the steam locomotives that comprised the Bulleid light pacifics, the West Country and Battle of Britain classes of locomotives that ran on the British Southern Railway network. They represented a publicity success for the Southern Railway in highlighting the names of resorts served by the Southern Railway. The Battle of Britain class also constituted a roving memorial to the fighter pilots who fought during the Battle of Britain, and subsequently the actions of RAF Fighter Command as a whole.
