This is the latest volume in our acclaimed and successful GW Goods series which explores, in unprecedented detail, how the Great Western Railway organised and conducted its freight business. This fourth volume in the series follows on from GWR Goods & Marine and the two volumes on GWR Goods Train Working, all written by the acknowledged expert in this field, Tony Atkins.
In this totally new book the author looks at how the railway sought to obtain goods traffic and how it strove to retain that traffic. This was a hugely important source of revenue for the railway. These days it is easy to overlook that for the GWR and their contemporaries, goods traffic generated far more income than passenger traffic.
The book shows both how goods were moved and delivered to and from the customer’s premises. The subjects covered thus include horse drawn drays and carts, motor lorries, stables, garages, and most importantly the facilities provide to handle the traffic at the various stations both large and small.
Superbly illustrated with a wealth of contemporary material, this all-new book is enhanced with charts, diagrams and maps. Heavily illustrated throughout, as well as providing fascinating insights on GWR goods operations, the book will be a rich reference source for those many railway modellers engaged on building GWR era layouts.
