Letters
The GWR in South Wales - Despite the undoubted importance of the independent South Wales railways, the GWR had a significant role before Grouping. Afterwards, the GWR's long-desired control of the independent railways lost its allure in face of the Depression.
Why the Great Western was Great - Adrian Vaughan - The GWR's greatness was not necessarily in the immediately obvious things. Excellent control of train braking and the introduction of Automatic Train Control were a clue to the real Greatness.

Great Western 150 - special feature - A message from WR General Manager, Sidney Newey introduces:
- 1. Taking GW 150 to the people . . .' The Editor talks to GW 150 co-ordinator, F. D. Pattisson.
- 2. 'Doing it properly ..." The WR's preparations for the big events of GW 150.
- 3. Celebrating the GWR in the West Midlands. The involvement of the Birmingham Railway Museum.
- 4. Great Western Steam 150 - at Didcot Railway Centre.

Laira steam finale - our GW 150 centrespread looks at the last days of WR steam at Laira in 1962/63. by courtesy of Clifford Trethewey.
