Private Owner Bristol & District GWR



Description

The third volume covering the privately operated wagons of Gloucestershire covers the city and county of Bristol and the areas around Warmley to the east and Avonmouth to the west. The majority of wagons featured in this book were concerned with the coal trade, bringing both housecoal and industrial coals into the city. The City of Bristol also has a long industrial history, thus wagons connected to such diverse businesses as the chemical industry, pottery and fireworks will be found within these covers. Wherever possible a short history of the business concerned has been given, as with the previous volumes, in an attempt to indicate the period over which a wagon for a specific owner might have been seen in traffic. This volume, and the other private owner wagon titles from Lightmoor Press, form an invaluable resource for railway modellers as well as for social and industrial historians. 128 pages hardback.

About Us

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.
