Great Western Railway

The Great Western Railway (GWR) was a British railway company that linked London with the south-west and west of England, the West Midlands, and most of Wales. It was founded in 1833, received its enabling Act of Parliament on 31 August 1835 and ran its first trains in 1838. It was engineered by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. It was amalgamated it with the remaining independent railways within its territory in 1921. It was nationalised and merged into British Railways in 1947. We have a selection of GWR railway planning maps published between 1877-1926.
