Western Branches, Western Byways Hardback



From St Ives in Cornwall through to Brentford in London, from Cardigan and New Radnor in Wales to West Bay and Abbotsbury in Dorset, the Great Western Railway and its antecedents was an inveterate builder of branch lines and secondary routes.

Many of these lines were often provided with only relatively limited station facilities and have proved to be highly popular prototypes for railway modellers, as they require only limited space. Kevin McCormack has gained access to a number of new photographic collections that provide stunning colour coverage, never seen before, of the ex-GWR branch and secondary lines in the late 1950s and 1960s during the last decade of primarily steam operation.
