Women employee in the Road Motor Department at Slough, 1944

The Road Motor Department at Slough was another area that saw the employment of women in traditionally male roles. This photograph was taken on April 18th 1944 and shows a female mechanic involved in the maintenance of the GWR's fleet of road vehicles. Supply difficulties and the shortage of trained staff made the maintenance of the road vehicles increasingly challenging, but with the railways being the biggest operators of road vehicles, it was vitally important that road services remained fully operational. With typical GWR resourcefulness, damaged and worn parts were repaired, and when component parts were not available from specialist firms, replacements were fabricated in the Company's own workshops
