The Heart of the Great Western
Vaughan, Adrian
ISBN: 1857940261
Book Number: 15352
Silver Link Publishing Ltd. Kettering, Northants, England 1994 224 pages b/w photos - Acclaimed railway author and GWR historian Adrian Vaughan grew up with, worked with and learned from old-hand GWR staff, men and women. This book is intended as a tribute to them. He uses Oxford station - the geographical 'heart' of the system - as an example of the greater 'heart' of the GWR, only because he worked there and knew the people; and any other station could produce a similar story. Over 220 photographs of the stations, the trains and the signal boxes, together with more than 30 signal box layout diagrams, support the entertaining yet deeply reasearched text to record a detailed picture of a system and a comradely way of life that has been destroyed by modern technology
