The Great Western Railway A Celebration


In this book, Tim Bryan follows on from his best-selling book on life on the GWR, "All in a Day's Work", to produce another general appeal book on the subject looking at all aspects of the GWR, including locomotives and rolling stock, working practices on the engines, in stations, workshops, signalboxes, sheds etc., throughout its history from the 1830s to when it was taken over by British Railways in 1948. In fact, even after Nationalisation, the Western Region was renowned for continuing for many years in the old traditions of the privatised railway, slightly apart from the rest of the network. The book will contain an attractive mix of historical archive photographs, anecdotes and social history and will appeal to a wide rang of those interested in the history of the railway.
