Great Western Pictorial No 3

The Tony Sterndale Collection

Tony Sterndale worked in the Drawing Office at Swindon Works in the late 1940s.It was a fascinating, but sad era, in which the old company was displaced by the nationalised concern.It was also a period when a number of older locomotives-their lives prolonged by the needs of the recently concluded war-were finally withdrawn.Tony photographed the locomotives, old and new, that were to be seen around the Works grounds, and some of the trains on the adjoining maijn lines, providing a fascinating record of the changeover from the GWR to British Railways in the Swindon locality.His visits to other places on the Western Region also generated some interesting photographs and these are included.
Hardcover, 104 pages, 154 b/w illustrations.
