GWR Bibliography - Books

The captions and the histories of the stations and routes on this website have been written by the contributors consulting many resources, not least from the many articles and books that have been published over the last century. Therefore much of the detailed information contained within the website is due in great part to the efforts of the authors of the publications listed below. We wish to take this opportunity to both express our recognition and our thanks for their dedicated research and hard work.
