GREAT WESTERN RAILWAY STATIONS 1947
AVAILABILITY
This book is the result of over 30 years

the second of two parts which intended
to show all Great Western Railway
passenger stations in use at 1947.
There are 881 stations having a track
diagram.  Nearly all have at least one

in over 1050 photographs in this book.
Dates of passenger opening and where
applicable, closure, are provided for
each station.  Brief line histories are
also included, with maps at the front
and an appendix of stations at the back,
to assist in the locating of stations
