Evacuees at Paddington Station in 1939

This moving image of evacuees making their way along platform 4 at Paddington Station was also taken during the 4 day evacuation of London and other major cities in September 1939. On September 1st, 58 evacuation trains were run by the GWR alone, carrying 44, 042 children from the capital to the countryside. By the 4th September the number was reduced to 28 trains transporting 17, 796 children. In total the GWR ran 163 trains from London during this 4 day period, evacuating 112, 994 children. The evacuation story did not end there however, for the GWR was subsequently involved with the re-evacuation of children from the South and East Coasts to safer places, and the evacuation of more children from the London area
