BR P&P 69 Swindon to Bristol

Details

Now part of the successful GWR franchise the line from Swindon to Bristol forms part of Brunel's original Great Western Railway from Paddington to Bristol, Wales and the South of England. In this volume John and Tim take the reader on a fascinating journey along the route visiting numerous locations. The number of stations has been reduced over the years, for example, Dauntsey and Christain Malford, closing many years ago due to the preference for motor car travel. However, the tide is turning and rail travel is becoming ever more popular with passenger numbers steadily increasing. The need for greater capacity has seen considerable investment in modernisation of the infrastructure. Details of this transformation can be found in 'Transformation of the Western Region', also by Silver Link. Using contrasting and complementary views the authors show the railways as it used to be in the days of steam and semaphore signalling through the diesel ear and right up to the present day electrified railway.
