Over the last few weeks there have been a few small events on on the Western side of the country. As Winter turns to Spring and more of the railways get their seasons underway, events to mark the new season are set up to to show off what the respective railways love to do best.
While I myself am from the East Coast, a fan of all things Gresley, you would be misguided to think that the Great Western, as it was, and as it now is in preserved form, doesn't offer something a little special. With the 'Great Way Round' built by Brunel, the beautiful engines built by Swindon and designed to be at and look at home in the gorgeous countryside of Western England, you'd have to be blind (and in most cases deaf) to not appreciate what was created here.
Here is the best of the two events I managed to get to:
