The Steam Workshops of the Great Western Railway


At the time of nationalisation, in addition to Swindon, the GWR had seven other Major Works, ten Divisonal Works and thirty-seven Repair & Lifting Shops - Churchward Standards. And at various times it had had more, which had come from absorbed companies, or which were closed on rationalisation.

This book looks, often in some detail, at the majority of these, indicating area served, work done and so on, and including plans in many cases.

207 page paperback, very well illustrated with B&W photos, diagrams and engravings.
