Hello Listeners

2016 is the year of Swindon 175: http://www.swindon175.com

“On 25 February 1841, GWR directors gave the go-ahead for the railway works to be built in Swindon – following the advice and recommendations of Locomotive Superintendent Daniel Gooch. He identified the town as being the ideal place for the GWR’s central repair workshops. Construction started immediately and a new town was born!

Throughout 2016 we will be celebrating this historic occasion plus the huge achievements that Swindon has made in the last 175 years.”
