The M7 0-4-4Ts Illustrated’ is one man’s record of a single locomotive class that held an endearing fascination; the LSWR ‘M7’ class. First introduced in 1897, 105 examples were built over the next 12 years with all but one surviving into British Railways ownership in 1948. With many of the type already over 50 years old at that time, they nevertheless continued to perform, passenger, branch freight and shunting duties often miles away from their original home, the last examples finally taken out of service in 1964. Two survive in preservation. Peter Moody first became acquainted with the class as a child in Devon and over the years developed a fascination for the class culminating in a large collection of images and a desire to see his work brought to a wider audience. Sadly that was not be during his lifetime, but Transport Treasury are delighted to bring Peter’s efforts to a rightful conclusion; ‘The Illustrated M7’.

    This is a fine illustrated book on the M7 0-4-4s and a fitting tribute to the author the late Peter Moody who unfortunately passed away before the book was published.
    The M7s were much loved locomotives who in the later years were mostly seen on the former Southern Railway branch lines and secondary routes. The photographs have reproduced well and the Transport Treasury Publishing are to be congratulated on producing this interesting book.
    One thing that caught this reviewer’s attention was the appreciation for the late H.C.Casserley and his son the late Richard Casserley whose photographs have featured in so many books and publications (including the reviewers own series of Branch Lines & Light Railways) over so many years.
    A highly recommended book which should appeal to all Southern Railway enthusiasts.

    The M7 0-4-4T’s deserves a 5 star rating. The book is very well produced and has some very good period photos of an iconic and long lived Class of loco.
    The book is well worth the cover price.
    From someone who remembers them working from Exmouth Junction in the late 50’s to early 60’s.
