GWR Original Plans & Sections.

Whilst we were having some insulation put in our loft in about 2000 the assistant, and aged about 30, asked if I would like any more bits & pieces of railway memorabilia as his girlfriend had some she had inherited. It transpired that the girlfriend's late uncle, who worked in the Surveyor's Department of BR, had taken a lot of old records rather than seeing them destroyed. Most are GWR plans from around the beginning of the twentieth century up to the late 1930s.

The oldest are the actual plans submitted in the Parliamentary session 1854 - 1855 for the Rhymney Extension Railway. I have been told that the dark blue folder they are wrapped up in is the correct style used for the submission of plans for Parliamentary approval. They are, however, in extremely poor condition and each time I open them bits break off.

The principle exception is the GWR route availability map - this was given to my father by the shed foreman at Worcester at the end of steam working.

Most are very large stitched JPEG compressed panoramas.
