STEAM, Brunel, - and the Broad Gauge For many, the journeys they most fondly remember are those when the Great Western Railway took them to the seaside. The term "Cornish Riviera" was, after all,  coined by the GWR. Thanks to the magnificent re-invention of Swindon's railway workshops in 2000, as Designer Village, National Monuments Record Centre,  - and "STEAM" Museum, not only are such memories rekindled in older folks, but a new interest is generated in the young. Rightly popular with excited school parties, at last there's plenty of room for everyone, -  including a new workshop, seen bottom right..
