Great Western Steam Rail Motors and Their Services
Chapter and verse on the subject, everything from detailed scale drawings of fittings and complete vehicles of all types through to allocations, services and even failures. The whole story from initial development is covered, as are the vehicles of the Great Western's constituent Welsh companies - the small petrol electric railcar also creeps in with its own small section, but everything else is steam. The collection of photographs reproduced is unimpeachable, showing the power plants, vehicles under construction, interior shots and of course the railcars in service. A personal favourite is the double page photograph on pages 34 and 35 showing several steam railmotors and a power plant outside the Works at Swindon whilst it is being extended. A really lovely book and as good an example of any of how very well organised the Great Western Railway was.
