About This Book

This new book compiled by Andrew Malthouse is as much a labour of love as an illustrated depiction of Swindon in the years 1938 through to 1964. Seen through the lens of the camera of R C ‘Dick’ Riley, Andrew Malthouse impresses us immediately with the breadth of knowledge of his subject, which includes examples of most GWR locomotive classes, including some from the absorbed companies, as well as a detailed plan of the works complex to orientate the various shops and locations. Finely detailed captions provide an insight that will leave even the most ardent GWR fans accruing even greater knowledge of their subject, whilst the same detail is given to the stock and running sheds, the signalling and even some of the more out of the way sidings that once made up what had once been the largest railway works in the country. This is No 5 in the series of albums using images from the R C Riley collection. Printed in the UK on quality art paper.
