When a visitor to Newton Abbot's Town and GWR museum produced a collection of railway photographs dating from the latter part of the last century, curator Felicity Cole realised that this was an important unpublished collection.

The collection proved to contain a substantial photographic record of the final years of the broad gauge, with many of the pictures relating to Newton Abbot and the final gauge conversion of the South Devon Railway main line and the Torbay branch.

The owner of the photographs allowed the museum to copy the images.  As a result, the museum was able to invite historians and the Broad Gauge Society to examine the material.

This book presents a selection of the photographs, over 125, with caption material provided by the researchers.  It is probably one of the most comprehensive published records of the appearance of Brunel's great vision as a working railway, as well as chronicling its final downfall and conversion to the 'narrow' gauge.
