2SL 3rd rail EMU(ex LBSCR overhead powered) 

The LBSCR introduced EMUs using overhead power, but when the Southern Railway took control, they standardised on 3rd rail, so the LBSCR units were converted. Pairs of end cars were put in sets , each end having the original lower roof, making them very different to other EMUs on the railway. Designated 2SL, they spent most of their life on the South London lines. They lasted till the mid 50s.

SR Sentinel Cammell steam railbus

Sentinel Cammell standard guage railbus built by the Southern Railway in 1932 to operate the steep climbing branch line up to High Dyke from Hove. It was not very successful, but still interesting.
The torpedo shape was very much in the spirit of the 1930s.

SR (ex SECR steam railmotor) push pull and articulated coaches 

These coaches were originally built by the SECR as steam railmotors, but in the 1920s, they were converted into 2 pairs of push-pull coaches and 2 sets of non push-pull articulated coaches. They lasted in this state till the 1950s.
One coach in each set had its luggage/guard section converted to passenger use, initially 1st class in the push pull sets

SECR 6 wheel push pull coach set

The SECR built these push pull sets using existing 6 wheel coaches, they had inherited from the LCDR. There were many variations, but this 3 coach set was more common and 'standard' than others. 
They survived into the 20s on the Southern Railway, being used at both ends of the SECR territory. 
Originally P class locos were used but others were also used. 

The set composed a 5 compartment third class a 4 compartment first with one third class compartment, and a 3 compartment brake third coach with driver compartment.

LSWR push pull vestibule coaches(Plymouth)

Pushpull coaches (diagram 136), to work w ith additional coach(diagram 25) , first introduced in 1906. Built to a similar style as the main batch of steam railmotors(H13). Originally designed to be pulled by the small C14 loco, itself based on the railmotor, and found to be underpowered , as was its replacement the S14 . Eventually the O2 0-4-4T as used, and these coaches mainly operated in the Plymouth area. 
Converted from wire control to air-control by the Southern Railway, with a modified driving cab end, they eventually were withdrawn from service in 1939.
