HISTORY OF THE GWR DVD: This superb programme looks at the GWR God s Wonderful Railway as it was in the 1950s and 1960s and more recently. Archive scenes capture the true essence of the GWR with its Brunellian stations and station platforms, engines, lines, freight yards and engine sheds. We can enjoy magnificent engines including some of the Castle and King Class that were turned out at Swindon. These include the 4079 Pendennis Castle, 5029 Nunney Castle, 7020 Gloucester Castle, 6000 King George V, 6024 King Edward I and others that have since ended up at the cutters. We also see engines that have been used on these lines of late including the Eurostar, Intercity 125s, the high speed trains on the Heathrow Express Service, ARC stone trains as well as single, twoand three-car units. And our look at the GWR wouldn t be complete without a visit to preserved lines including the Taff Valley Railway and the Cholsey and Wallingford Railway. HISTORY OF THE GWR LITTLE BOOK: To paraphrase the old army adage, there were three ways of doing things: the right way, the wrong way and the Great Western Way. Right from its start in the 1830s the Great Western quickly established its own distinctive and idiosyncratic way of life. Not least with the bold decision to adopt a track gauge of 7 0¼ when every other railway at the time was happy to standardise at 4 8½ . But, as this History of the Great Western will show, the railway with its excellently designed and engineered locomotives is just our starting point. The GWR had extensive shipping interests, ran buses and lorries and even had its own air service. It ran docks, restaurants and hotels and in the restaurant cars you could read the Great Western magazine, drink Great Western whisky and eat Great Western biscuits with your cheese. With this total embrace and a consciously different approach from other lines it s no surprise that passengers and employees thought the GWR superior to what they regarded as the other lesser railway companies. In some ways perhaps it was but there s certainly no doubt the GWR has had a long held appeal, and not just for dedicated railway enthusiasts. In this book as well as addressing historical details and technical facts we ll try to discover just what it was.
