South Eastern and Chatham Railway (SE&CR)

The South Eastern and Chatham Railway (SE&CR), was a working union of two neighbouring rival railways, the South Eastern Railway (SER) and London, Chatham and Dover Railway (LC&DR), which operated between London and south-east England. Between 1899 and 1923, the SE&CR had a monopoly of railway services in Kent and to the main Channel ports for ferries to France and Belgium. In addition to its railway activities the SE&CR also operated ships on cross-channel services. In 1923 the South Eastern and Chatham Railway (SE&CR) was merged with the London & South Western Railway (LSWR) and the London, Brighton and South Coast Railway (LB&SCR) to form the Southern Railway.
