The Castle class 'Cheltenham Flyer' was the world's fastest steam train when Great Western Railways published this 'new railway book for boys of all ages' in 1934. The narrative covers much more than the record-breaking locomotive, describing engineering and operational aspects of the railway including signal box equipment, coaching stock, freight services, the Swindon Works and even transporting elephants. The book is reprinted here with some 200 original photographs and diagrams and a new introduction and supplement.
