'Break of Gauge at Gloucester', Gloucestershire, 6th June 1846. Artist: WJ Linton

'Break of Gauge at Gloucester', Gloucestershire, 6th June 1846. Plate taken from the Illustrated London News (6 June 1846) showing passengers and luggage being transferred from broad gauge to narrow gauge carriages at Gloucester station, on their way to Birmingham. Narrow gauge became the uniform railway line gauge nationally. Isambard Kingdom Brunel, the engineer of the Great Western Railway (GWR) had laid broad gauge track, meaning that passengers on the GWR had to be transferred to trains that ran on narrow gauge where necessary.
