Model Information: On the 31 August 1835, railway history was created when, by Act of Parliament, The Great Western Railway was born.
The innovative GWR steered by the giant of Victorian engineering, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, was to make an immense impact upon the world of railway travel. Extremely autocratic and fiercely independent, even after the birth of British Railways and their standardisation programme, the GWR retained its indomitable spirit.
In acknowledgement of the enormous contribution mad by the Great Western Railway to not only rail travel but also society as a whole an official celebration is planned by Steam - The Museum of The Great Western Railway throughout this year to commemorate 175 years of the GWR's inauguration.
