About this title
In 2010 the GWR—God's Wonderful Railway—will be celebrating 175 years of operation. In this book, Tim Bryan follows his best-selling book about 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, signal boxes, sheds, and so on throughout its history from the 1830s to when it was taken over by British Railways in 1948. The book contains an attractive mix of historical archive photographs, anecdotes, and social history and will appeal to a wide range of those interested in the history of the railway. The major GWR preservation centers—STEAM at Swindon and at Didcot—are planning anniversary celebrations as are numerous heritage railways throughout the country, including Gloucestershire & Warwickshire Railway, Swindon & Cricklade Railway, and West Somerset Railway and Vintage Trains, Tyseley.
