The Great Way West: London to Cornwall by Rail

Availability: In stock

Author: Jeremy de Souza

A pictorial journey along the famous rail route from London to the West of England, well known by thousands of travellers and holidaymakers over the years, this book will show many of the views that are so familiar, along with the branch lines that offer links to resorts such as Torquay, Looe, Newquay and St Ives.

For the railway enthusiast, the past generation has seen a remarkable transformation from the end of steam and the reign of the popular Warship and Western diesels, through the High Speed Train (HST) years, and more recently the electrification of the London to Bristol section of the line and the introduction of bi-mode diesel/electric units.

The images cover the route from London’s Paddington terminus, along the Thames Valley past Reading and on towards Bristol, before turning south to Taunton, Exeter, Plymouth and on into Cornwall. The Berks & Hants line through Newbury, Westbury and Castle Cary is also included.
