My expertise on the Southern begins and ends with the Schools Class. I'm building one of those in 1 1/2" scale. Brian Stephenson seems to have books published on the Southern Railway and, if you haven't seen them, go to Motorbooks and search on Southern Railways. http://www.motorbooks.co.uk/index.asp Locomotives built at Eastleigh, Brighton, and Ashford are given in 4 volumes. I've no idea if the D3 was built in either of these shops. If you find out which shop the LBSC D-3 was built in, a history of that shop might have something. Also, http://www.semgonline.com/steam/d3-d3x_01.html which I'm sure you have seen. JerryK MODEL ENGINEERING DISCUSSION LIST.
