Replica GWR salt and pepper shaker The products offer outstanding performance and durability due to the use of vitrified hotelware and have been accurately and sympathetically decorated, using traditional hand crafted skills. -  These products are designed to reflect those used in the halcyon years of the internationally renown Great Western Railway. The company’s origins date back to 1835 and began with the appointment of Isambard Kingdom Brunel as its first Chief Engineer. Always at the cutting edge of technology and at the pinnacle of style the GWR grew to become one of the largest commercial ventures in the world! By 1923 it was carrying 170,000,000 passengers a year together with 60,000,000 tons of goods. With 108,110 employees its empire stretched from its London Paddington Headquarters to Penzance in Cornwall and as far North as Liverpool. Its operations encompassed ocean going ships, major docks throughout South Wales, aeroplanes and some of the countries finest hotels. During the 1930’s, not wishing to appear to fall behind the times, the GWR embarked upon a massive modernisation plan. The scheme included new rolling stock, rebuilt stations and hotels together with goods facilities and infrastructure. As part of this new image was the worlds fastest scheduled train service - The Cheltenham Flyer and as the focal point of its rebranding was the iconic Art Deco roundel. The design on the product contained here depicts the typical black leaf pattern used on GWR porcelain during this period which would have appeared in on-train restaurant cars, station buffets and in the company’s famous hotels.

The Vale of Rheidol Railway (WelshRheilffordd Cwm Rheidol) is a 1ft 11 3/4 inches (603 mmnarrow gauge heritage railway that runs for 11 3?4 miles (18.9 km) between Aberystwyth and Devil's Bridge in the county of Ceredigion, Wales.

Until 
privatisation, it was the sole steam-operated line on the nationalised British Rail network, steam traction having ceased in 1968 on all other parts of the system. Unlike some other preserved railways in the United Kingdom, the Vale of Rheidol Railway has never closed, with the exception of wartime and has operated a service for tourists through its life. The railway celebrated its centenary in 2002. 

The Railway is a charity, meaning the income it generates goes back into the railway, to aid in restoration and running of the steam locomotives. Buying through our online giftshop enables you to get the product you want but also donate to the railway and keep it alive.
