GWR Goods Wagons


Atkins, Beard, Tourret

£49.99 save £5.01 (normal price £55.00)
REPRINTING 2017 * Hardback, 536 pages, Illustrations, 296 x 208 mm

   

First published in two volumes in 1975 and 1976, this is a reprint of the fully revised and combined third edition of GWR Goods Wagons published with additional material by Tourret Publishing in 1998. Although out of print for many years, GWR Goods Wagons is still the most comprehensive book on the subject that has been published and is regarded by enthusiasts and modellers as the definitive reference book on the subject. The detailed text, with over 700 photographs and 500 line drawings, trace the development of the Great Western Railway's wagons from the 1870s through to Nationalisation in 1948.

The book starts with an introduction to GWR freight working, lists the telegraph code names for wagons and provides a complete wagon diagram index, enabling the reader to identify virtually any GWR wagon. The design of each wagon type is then analysed and illustrated in detail, with the majority of the scale drawings reproduced at the 4mm/ft scale to assist modelers.
