The Main Works of the Former GWR
The Great Western Railway (GWR), the third in size of the four group companies, was unlike the others in retaining its original name at amalgamation — mainly because it absorbed relatively few other companies. From its inception in 1833 the GWR was always held in high esteem, and it retained its prestige and reputation for good service throughout the years. It was blessed with an almost legendary Chief Civil Engineer, the pioneering Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
