Great Western Railway Structure Colours 1912-1947

Regular price £14.95

This GWSG publication draws on the author’s research extending over many years. It differs from earlier published material in this field in that the author has had access to a complete set of the minutes of the GWR Paint Committee. This accounts for the title of the book, since the Committee first met in 1912, and it also provides a unique insight into the way the GWR dealt with this subject. In addition, the book quotes from the GWR Engineering Department Instructions of 1930 and 1933 as well as the Signal Department Painting Instructions of 1907.

Also included in the book are copies of numerous GWR documents; notes and sketches by the late Michael Morton Lloyd; and colour photographs from several sources of a number of ex-GWR buildings in GWR paint schemes. The author has received considerable assistance from other people with expertise in all matters Great Western, particularly from Keith Ettle and David Hyde, both of whom are also members of the Study Group. The result is a comprehensive work containing authoritative and detailed material.

Softback, 88 pages, including photographs, copy documents, & sketches.

ISBN: 9780992675301
