By the 1920s, the Great Western Railway had established its reputation as the 'Holiday Line' stretching from the bustling city of London to the beautiful coastline of the South West. The only company to survive the Grouping Act of 1921 with its identity intact, it boasted one of the country's most celebrated express trains: the Cornish Riviera Express, popularly known as the '10.30 Limited'. Published in 1923, this charming introduction to the history, operation and journey of the service gives a nostalgic glimpse of what was - at 226 miles - the longest non-stop route in the world, and which was to attain iconic status in the years to come.
