Southern Railway loco numbering
Author: Hartington

Can somebody please explain why some (but not all?) Southern Railway locomotives had a letter suffix e.g. 1234A?

The letters were "check digits" to make sure entries were correct. They were not actually part of the loco number, though.

I wondered if it was some form of check digit. Thank you.
