The gradual growth of the railways in Britain during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, in both passenger and freight traffic, saw the requirement for a more powerful and versatile type of motive power _ mixed traffic locomotives. The construction of Great Western Halls and Modified Halls gave the Great Western a superb all round locomotive, and for thirty-six years they operated passenger and freight services over the Great Western, and later Western Region. The Hall class were among the largest mixed traffic steam locomotives that ran throughout this country, and this is the first serious volume to focus on them in fifty years. The book charts the history of both classes, from their construction and withdrawal, to their design, development and eventual scrapping. With over 200 black and white, and colour photographs, accompanied by informative captions, each member of the classes is excellently illustrated. It will appeal greatly to those interested in the history of Great Western Locomotive development.

DIV God’s Wonderful Railway”, it was called if you were a fan; the “great Way Round” if you took a rather more jaundiced view of some of its circuitous branch lines. But 175 years after its foundation, the Great Western Railway company is remembered with the most nostalgia, even love, of all Britain’s pre-nationalisation railway companies. It built, and ran, the great main line from London to the West Country and Cornwall (today’s First Great Western franchise). It was engineered by the greatest of them all, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, who built such wonders as the Box Tunnel and the Saltash bridge. Its steam locomotives were designed by great men like Churchward and Hawkesworth. But also it had wonderful stations like the soaring Paddington and Bristol Temple Meads, as well as innumerable idyllic country halts with little more than a pagoda shelter and a couple of milk churns awaiting collection. Its engines were painted a deep green, its carriages chocolate and cream. Its Cornish Riviera Express train, and the line alongside the beach at Dawlish sprayed by the waves, became the stuff of legend. Now Andy Roden has written the first comprehensive history of the GWR for 20 years, to tie in with its 175th anniversary. It will appeal to everyone who bought his Flying Scotsman or Christian Wolmar’s railway histories. /div

The model train set is the archetypal toy, and the archetypal British model rail train is a Hornby. Hornby: The Official Illustrated History is the first full pictorial account of the rise and development of the three main model railway systems that have borne the famous Hornby name over the last 82 years. From the simple toy trains of the 1920s to the super-detailed models of the 21st century, the Hornby story is richly enhanced with historic material and color photos of the trains that made Hornby the most famous name in British model railways.

Britons have always viewed their railway system with a mixture of affection, amusement and exasperation. Yet there were also periods in the twentieth century when Britain's railways were a source of pride and excitement. Many still recall when the train was their principal means of travel, whether to school or work, to visit friends and relatives, or to go on holiday. And it wasn't just people that went by train: the food that fed them, the bricks that built their homes, the coal that heated them, were all carried by train. This book celebrates this time when a train journey remained an adventure, and when the steam locomotives that made the journey possible were a source of awe and fascination. Those journeys are recalled in Yesterday's Railways, alongside the eventful journey made by all of Britain's railways from the ground-breaking years of the 1900s to the day in August 1968 that the fires were put out for the last time.
