GWR mark 100 years since the Great War

To mark 100 years since the end of the First World War, Great Western Railway is honouring the more than 2000 employees of the company who lost their lives in the Great War.

A specially commissioned nine-carriage train has been created, containing the name of each man who worked with the railway at that time.

It was put into action in a ceremony at Paddington station.
