Good Morning Lovelies, 

And how are we all today? I am in a very happy disco filled mood today lovelies and I think it is because I am finishing university for two weeks to celebrate Easter! Oh Yes! And that means lots of fun events (forget the dissertation!) and a lot of travelling. 

However today Great Western Railway have announced with street artist Andy Council that they have create a colouring book called, ‘Iron Horses of the West’, that celebrates all things to do with the classic railways that will keep us all entertained on our journeys. 

Speaking about the book, Artist Andy Council said, “It’s been really therapeutic designing a book inspired by the routes and trains I travelled through growing up in Bristol. I always gain creative influence from my surroundings and to craft something which heroes the West is something I’m really passionate about.”

While, Dan Panes, Head of Communications at GWR, commented: “Train enthusiasts are the ‘super fans’ of our business yet their passion is often maligned. Using a renowned and celebrated Bristol artist, this new book adds to the on-board experience, and offers passengers young and old, the chance to re-engage with their railway.” 

And Anthony Coulls, Senior Curator of Rail Transport and Technology at the National Railway Museum, said: “It’s great to hear about interesting, creative initiatives to celebrate our railways and engage people in Britain’s fascinating railway history. The National Railway Museum is the proud owner of several iconic Great Western Railway locomotives. Visitors can currently see the fantastic 1907 steam locomotive Lode Star and a beautiful 1930s GWR diesel railcar on display in our Great Hall at our museum in York, and we also have two other well-known GWR steam engines, King George V and City of Truro, temporarily on loan to STEAM, the Museum of the Great Western Railway, in Swindon.”

Look out for it lovelies over the holidays to keep you entertained on your journeys to the cinema or another film world!
