Wartime GWR

Serving The Nation During Two World Wars

An unrivalled collection of photographs taken from the archive of the GWR at Swindon STEAM Museum, which graphically reveal how two world wars changed the way of life on the GWR and the lives of all its staff forever. In a time of enormous social change women became the new workforce while the men were away at war, and railways were at the forefront of the war effort as they struggled to maintain the flow of people, goods and armaments.

This is an evocative and enthralling tribute to the GWR's wartime efforts and is compiled by two members of STEAM - Museum of the GWR who have unique access to a wealth of rare and unseen material.
