Swindon Steam: A New Light on GWR Loco Development
Swindon Steam: A New Light on GWR Loco Development
by L. A. Summers
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.82

4.0 out of 5 stars A different view of GWR steam locomotives, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The obvious thing to do is to compare this book with those written by W. Tuplin, many years ago. They are different and this book presents some alternative views, together with some interesting forays into photo editing not possible in Mr Tuplin's day. Some of the opinions in the last chapter about what might have been, what British Railways should have done with both steam and diesel locomotives are questionable, but then that is what this book is about - opinions. Despite these comments the book is still worth a good and I am not sorry that I bought it.

4.0 out of 5 stars GWR after World War 2, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This provides an interesting view of a short and often neglected period of GWR history. It makes a very good attempt to cover a wider selection of aspects of life working for the GWR in this period of austerity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good study of period in GWR history, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Inheritance (Hardcover)
This book provides a good study of an interesting period in GWR history. Probably when the company reached the peak of its existence, even if the revenues were not what they had been at the start of the 20th century.

1.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't work, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first copy that I received did not work in my usual DVD player. One of the two DVD's did work in an older DVD player, and the other DVD would only play some tracks. I ordered a replacement, and this turned out to have exactly the same problems. Obviously there are production problems, so beware.

4.0 out of 5 stars Replaced an old battery, 22 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item has replaced the original battery purchased with the mobile phone. The impression is that it does hold its charge for as long we had hoped, but it is a lot better than the original battery, now several years old.
