Great Western Locomotives on the Main Line
With the final elimination of the broad gauge in the early 1890s, the Great Western Railway for the first time possessed a fleet of locomotives that was exclusively standard gauge. Under the auspices of George Armstrong, William Dean and George Jackson Churchward, a number of classic locomotive designs emerged from both Wolverhampton and Swindon works during the final decades of the 19th century. The volume includes a historical overview of the GWR during the Edwardian period coupled with a variety of photographs and detailed captions. The author also outlines a number of other pre-Grouping companies – such as the Midland & South Western Joint – that were to become part of the GWR in 1923.
