Great Western Railway

The original Great Western Railway was built by I K Brunel to a 7’ gauge and ran from Paddington to Bristol and Exeter. Its trains were, at one time, the fastest in the world.

Eventually the GWR reached the far west of England and South Wales and north to Birmingham, Chester and Birkenhead. Commercial considerations led to the abolition of the broad gauge in 1892 but by 1905 the GWR was on top again developing locomotive designs that were many years ahead of its rivals.

When the railways were nationalised in 1948 the GWR was the only company to have kept its separate existence since being first set up.
