Was the LMS too big? Frederic Stansfield In his reply to my earlier letter about the size of the LMS September issueDoug Landau November issue makes many interesting points describing the company's engineering innovations.
But two of Landau's examples show how engineering developments within the LMS were subordinated to business issues.
LMS management's rejection of electrification proposals, because of insufficient return on capital, is unsurprising when neither the scheme nor the one linked London with a major city such as Birmingham. Also, the belt repair system to which Landau refers represented the development in Britain of "scientific management" techniques.
As he indicates, this system had the business aim of reducing repair times and costs. Letter writer would agree in general with Landau's observation that the Southern Railway was the most forward looking of the 'Big Four'. However, in my previous letter I compared the LMS not with its British contemporaries but with other European railways, which received more government support.
Britain's railways, including the LMS, did receive very limited government finance in the s. Landau does not address the question 'Was the LMS too big? The company's business failure to follow-up engineering developments, such as electrification and main line diesel locomotives, would suggest the opposite.
The LMS was if anything too small to attract the money needed to implement its engineers' technical innovations.

This first conference has attracted papers from authors studying subjects in several parts of the world, in addition to the United Kingdom.
These are related to economic, political, social and cultural progress in several countries, and business and financial incentive and practice. They also cover developments in surveying, structural, architectural and building practices, as well as mechanical and electrical engineering.
