Written by two members of STEAM's Curatorial Team, Wartime GWR is an unrivalled collection of photographs taken from the mueum archive. Featuring many previously unseen images, the book reveal how two world wars changed the way of life on the GWR and the lives of all its staff forever. In a time of enormous social change women became the new workforce while the men were away at war, and railways were at the forefront of the war effort as they struggled to maintain the flow of people, goods and armaments.

An evocative and enthralling tribute to the GWR's wartime efforts.
