  • The Great Western at Swindon Works (Peck)

The GWR's Swindon works were world famous, primarily as the place of manufacture of its magnificent fleet of steam locomotives, including the well-known "Star", "Castle", and "King" class express locomotives, as well as the many other classic Great Western designs for freight and passenger duties. In fact, Swindon was the largest single asset of the Great Western, producing practically everything the railway required, all to a magnificently high standard of craftsmanship. This book tells the story of the engineering works over its entire existence, detailing the growth of the establishment, its workforce, the development and production of locomotives and rolling stock, with the manufacturing processes employed. This book grew from a paper presented by the author at the 125th anniversary celebrations of Swindon Works in 1968, subsequently being published over ten years ago to become the classic reference and record of this best known of railway workshops. DW protected by clear wrapper. Book in very good condition, apart from some rippling to the last few pages. OPC 1983  296pp.  64-1SFN-9OEO
