Can anyone help with a copy of a Working Time Table for the line "Sevenoaks Tubs Hill - Bat & Ball - Otford" c1930 (i.e. before electrification and the loco shed at Bat & Ball was closed in 1935).

My Son & I are building an approx model of Bat & Ball Station and it would be interesting to understand what trains used the route, in addition to the motor train.

many thanks

Paul

Dear Paul,
Can't help you directly. Pre-WW2 timetables are extremely rare and in browsing at swapmeets, toy fairs, specialist bookshops and exhibitions have seen very few - and those I did see were relatively expensive.

You might try the following places:
www.davidnewbandbooks.co.uk (advertiser in Railway Modeller and the Railway Magazine)
www.billhudsontransportbooks.co.uk (advertises in Railway Mag)
www.henrywilsonbooks.co.uk (advertises in Railway Mag)
Robert Humm & Co (advertises in Railway Mag) - tel:01780 766 266 or email: [email protected]

Possible other sources who might have the information for consultation:
Railway Travel and Correspondence Society
National Railway Museum
Kent County Archive
I've think I've seen reference to a Southern Railway Modellers Group on this forum who are also likely to be a source of information.

Hope the above may be of help,
Regards,
John Webb

I think a book was published about 10-12 years ago about Southern Engine workings - it might help. I'll track down the title, author, publisher and ISBN number when I get to my library next.

Regards

John

It's actually Southern Region Engine workings by C J Gammell, it was published by OPC. Although out of your time scale it does contain useful information about train workings.

Try looking for information on the SEmG Website.

If it's not there, try joining the group via the link on the first page and ask your question on this group. There are many members holding copies of these WTTs and they will be able to supply answers to specific questions.
