First published in two volumes in 1975 and 1976, this is a reprint of the fully revised and combined third edition of GWR Goods Wagons published with additional material by Tourret Publishing in 1998. The detailed text traces the development of the Great Western Railway's wagons from the 1870s right through to Nationalisation in 1948.
Out of print for over 10 years, this remarkable work of reference is certain to be widely welcomed by all GWR modellers and historians, covering in encyclopaedic detail every single wagon that ever ran on the GWR. The book starts with an introduction to GWR freight working, lists the telegraph code names for wagons and provides a complete wagon diagram index, enabling the reader to identify virtually any GWR wagon. With over 700 photographs and over 500 scale drawings, this is certainly the definitive guide on the subject and will be essential reading for all keen GWR enthusiasts.
