Family boarding a train in the carriage sidings at Swindon, for the annual Works trip, 1932

Swindon Works closed down for two weeks every year, and the workers and their families went on a holiday known as the Trip. Complimentary trains ferried families to their destinations. In order to reduce any disruption to normal services, these trains were boarded from inside the Works or further down the line

Passengers at Paddington Station in 1943

This image, taken on Saturday 31st July 1943 (August Bank Holiday), shows hoards of passengers at Paddington Station. In 1939 the slogan "Is Your Journey Really Necessary" was introduced to discourage people from travelling within Britain. It was used to remind people to save fuel and allow trains to transport soldiers and war supplies instead. By the summer of 1943 these regulations had been relaxed slightly, which encouraged more pleasure travel. On this day, 34,000 passengers were despatched from Paddington, with 40,000 recorded on the day before. All the trains to the West Country were loaded to capacity and some passengers were left behind!
