ON THE BACK COVER:
In this book Kevin Robertson has brought together a fascinating collection of previously unpublished facts and photographs to throw new light on the long history of the Great Western Railway. He has drawn on hitherto inaccessible sources and has chosen to illustrate and record many unusual aspects of the GWR which have been overlooked in other works devoted to this famous company.
The book covers subjects as diverse as experimental signal design, station furniture, the petrol railcar, the 1930s camping coach and even the GWR's accident record - hitherto considered exemplary. It illustrates the stations and the staff and above all the locomotives and the rolling stock upon which the high reputation of the company depended.
Odd Corners of the GWR will be entertaining and informative reading for everyone who has a sense of railway history. It will be specially valuable for enthusiasts who are keen to learn more about the background to the success of the GWR during the great age of British railways.
KEVIN ROBERTSON is an established expert on the GWR and a keen railway enthusiast and author. His most recent publications include GWR The Gas Turbines - A Myth Exposed, Leader: The Full Story and Steam Around Eastleigh.
