The Southern Railways Group

The Southern Railways Group was formed in the 1970s to gather, research and preserve information about:

  • The Southern Railway
  • Its constituent predecessors
  • British Railways (Southern Region)
  • The successors to BR(S)
  • And minor railways in southern England.

The Group’s publications include data sheets and plans, a bi-monthly newsletter, and a quarterly magazine.

The Group owns the ‘Phoenix‘ range of coaching stock kits for modellers working in 4mm scale. The current range contains mostly of items for the Southern modeller, but there are also some components for the GWR, LMS, LNER and BR modeller.

There is also a Yahoo email discussion group, which includes photos and files archives. Membership is restricted to SRG members.
