- Swindon Engineman
- This book sets out to record Gordon Shurmer's footplate experiences, the turns he worked in each link and the running of Swindon Shed. It is a collaborative effort, which has taken a number of years with Mike Fenton transcribing many hours of taped conversations and interrogation to provide an invaluable record of railway work. Gordon represents the last of a tough breed of men who began careers on the old Great Western before the Second World War and who's working life straddled the years of great change.
- The book also contains a brief history of Swindon engine sheds.
