What's inside this signed copy of 'Great Western Railway - Cheltenham Flyer'

Originally published by the GWR in 1934 this book not only celebrates the Flyer's iconic status but also explores the workings of a steam locomotive and the day-to-day practicalities of running the railway. More than just a nostalgic railway book for 'boys of all ages', GWR Cheltenham Flyer is packed with the sort of fascinating detail not found elsewhere and is faithfully reproduced in its entirety in this special facsimile edition.

Illustrated with over 200 photographs and diagrams, it includes a new introduction plus supplement section to bring the topics bang up to date.

GWR Cheltenham Flyer is the companion volume to GWR Track Topics.
