Previously unpublished facts and photographs are brought together in this volume to throw light on the long history of the Great Western Railway. The subjects covered are as diverse as experimental signal design, station furniture and the petrol railcar, the 1930s camping coach and even the GWR's accident record. The book illustrates the stations and the staff and above all, the locomotives and the rolling stock upon which the high reputation of the company depended.


Stations and yards; on shed; signals and signal-boxes; trackwork; locomotives; rolling stock; the GWR publicity department; accidents and automatic train control.
