Introduction
Since the first volume was published in 1985, many people have written asking when this second book would be ready. We have had much pleasure in compiling it and hope the reader enjoys it also!
In Volume II we have tried to provide more in-depth information, some of which was not available to us in 1982 when we compiled the first book, to give the railway enthusiast, modeller, or casual reader, a better insight into the Great Western Railway of the 1930s.
Those intervening years have also enabled us to look more closely into the background of the period. The earlier photographs were taken in a climate of depression and high unemployment whilst the later views, as one of the captions relates, were photographed during a period of international tension and gathering war clouds, culminating in 1939 with the beginning of the Second World War. Through the lens of Mr. Soole's camera, we have a unique collection of photographs, taken largely within a twenty mile radius of the centre of Bristol, capturing the changing face of a single railway through a time span of some five years. Against the political, international and economic backcloth it is possible to see the character of the railway changing as it competes for freight traffic and passengers, not only from other railways but from the increasing volume of road transportation. The Great Western can be seen introducing new locomotives and carriages, modernising stations and improving routes and facilities, in an effort to stay competitive. Perhaps this is the finest collection of photographs taken showing a railway during such a short, but fascinating and important time in our recent history.
