A glorious celebration of a lost era. There are photographs of just over 100 different stations, all with informative extended captions.This does not set out to be a history or even cover all of the GWR system, but instead it is intended to capture the scenes of days long gone. All the views are taken before the 1948 nationalisation and therefore are 'truly Great Western'.
The photographs are laid out in approximate geographic sequence starting from London, heading west towards the West Country, then returning towards Wales, the border country and the West Midlands.
It is hoped that the photographs in this book bring back fond memories of holidays taken by rail or, for the younger reader, help them understand the network of rural branch lines that the GWR established in the heyday of rail travel. Perhaps also the photographs will help the GWR modeller with some small detail to make their model more authentic and prove a valuable addition to your railway library.
