The spirit of innovation demonstrated by the Great Western Railway's petrol-engined railcar of 1912 perhaps illustrates why the company had a reputation for doing things differently (and better) than its competitors. This book looks beyond the famous and glamorous aspects of the GWR to explore less well-trodden ground such as weed killing trains and unusual rolling stock, anomalous stations and station furniture, experimental signal design and camping coaches.
