Southern Way Special Issue No 11: The 'Booster' Locos CC1/CC2/20003
Unique to the Southern Railway and later the Southern Region were the three electric 'Booster' locomotives - CC1, CC2 and 20003. Now the full history of these engines over their 25 years of service are comprehensively covered by authors Simon Lilley and John Weynon who have vast experience in historical research and electrical engineering. Between them they are ideally placed to chronicle the design, building and operation of these three engines which in some ways were far ahead of their time. The highly readable text incorporates many new photographs.
