The Great Western Railway In Dean
- The Great Western Railway In Dean
- by H.W.Paar
- The Forest of Dean has been for centuries a cradle of the iron, steel, tinplate, coal and timber industries, and is now a National Park with timber and light industries and a residential area for surrounding industrial towns. The Forest railways, although small have had a history as rich as that of their setting. In this book the author concludes his story of these railways with accounts of the lines which became part of the Great Western Railway, and some others. The subjects include horse tramroads, broad-gauge, standard-gauge and narrow gauge railways, and some which were never constructed, half constructed or constructed but not opened. Great names are here, Rennie, Gooch, Brunel, Stephenson, but most of the work was done by the lesser lights, and their names and accomplishments are recorded in detail for the first time.
