History of the Great Western Railway on DVD

The Great Western Railway (GWR) was a British railway company that linked London with the south-west and west of England and most of Wales. It was founded in 1833, and ran its first trains in 1838. It was engineered by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, who chose a broad gauge of 7 ft 0 1/4 in, but from 1854, a series of amalgamations saw it also operate 4 ft 8 1/2 in standard-gauge trains, the last broad-gauge services were operated in 1892.

The GWR was nicknamed by some "God's Wonderful Railway" and by others the "Great Way Round" but it was famed as the "Holiday Line", taking many people to resorts in South-West England. The company's locomotives, many of which were built in the company's workshops at Swindon, were painted a Middle Chrome green colour while, for most of its existence, it used a two-tone "chocolate and cream" livery for its passenger coaches.

Offered for your enjoyment are these three timeless books written about the Great Western Railway.
