The Great Western Society A Tale of Endeavour and Success

by Burton, Anthony

The Great Western Society A Tale of Endeavour and Success Synopsis

This book tells the story of one of Britain's most successful heritage railway projects. Formed in 1960, The Great western Society was founded by a group of school boys who wanted to save a Great Western Tank locomotive and an auto trailer. Today that original project has blossomed into the best collection of Great western rolling stock and locomotives in the world. This is the story of the Society and its members, who have made this possible.
