Come look at the Great Western Railway (GWR) in the days when traffic was controlled with the disk and crossbar signal, approximately 1838 to 1874. It was a time of wonder, a time of social change, a time of legends, a time of heroes a time when a man who drove a locomotive from London to Exter and back in a single day was looked upon much as a lunar astronaut is now.

Mostly dating from the 1960's also a few taken by my uncle in the 1930's. The purchase of a new scanner and digital technology has enabled previously unprintable negatives to reveal memory evoking images
   A short history of Britain's broad gauge railways Preview Go
In 1835, in the early days of railway construction, the Great Western Railway was born. The original main line ran between London and Bristol, a distance of 117 miles (187 kms), which was opened throughout in June 1841. What made the Great Western Railway unusual was the choice of gauge. Instead of building the railway to what became the British standard gauge of 4ft 8½ins, the track was laid to a gauge of 7ft 0¼ins (“broad gauge”). Over the following 25 years, many of the railways connecting to the Great Western Railway built their lines with broad gauge track, resulting in a network of broad gauge railways extending from London to Bristol, Wolverhampton, South Wales, Weymouth, and westward through the counties of Somerset, Devon and Cornwall to reach Penzance. At its peak in 1868, broad gauge railways covered 1,070 miles
