Western Region

Western Region railway station holidays The Western Region was a region of British Railways from 1948 and consisted principally of ex-Great Western Railway lines, minus certain lines west of Birmingham, which were transferred to the London Midland Region in 1963 and with the addition of all former Southern Railway routes west of Exeter, which were subsequently rationalised.

The region ceased to be an operating unit in its own right in the 1980s and was wound up at the end of 1992.
