`Curly' Lawrence is probably the best known writer on model engineering subjects, writing under his pseudonym of `LBSC'. He wrote for many years for the Model Engineer. What is less well known are his exploits on the London, Brighton & South Coast Railway at New Cross. `Curly' Lawrence joined LBSC in the mid 1890's. In the seven or so years of railway service he would only have graduated to approved fireman, but that status enabled him to go out on the road. His reminiscences date from an era when next to no railwaymen were putting pen to paper. On the photographic side, Klaus Marx has been able to illustrate every one of the locomotives mentioned in the memoirs, and for the most part within the compass of the years 1898-1904.
