West from Paddington is the essential companion for every traveller on First Great Western Railway. Packed with information on all the landmarks, railway history, geographical features and places of interest that can be seen from your window as your journey unfolds, this indispensable guide covers three great routes - Paddington to Bristol; Reading to Penzance and Swindon to Carmarthen. A route map for each section of the journey highlights the features described, and the book includes hundreds of specially commissioned colour photographs giving a 'traveller's-eye' view. Each entry indicates on which side of the train the place or item of interest described can be found. Written by lifelong railway enthusiast and Professor of Transport, Stuart Cole, and with a Foreword by pop impresario and railway devotee Pete Waterman OBE, West from Paddington will turn your journey into a voyage of discovery.
