The great brunel railway company is just like those old train companies its just that we dont have any trains or track or tickets or timetables but we do have our own contemporary take on those old posters and we love what we do raising money to help others. Brunels choice to locate the great western railway locomotive sheds there caused a need for housing for the workers which in turn gave brunel the impetus to build hospitals churches and housing estates in what is known today as the railway village. From there his great western railway connected london directly to bristol via bridges and tunnels all built by brunel at bristol travelers could then take one of brunels pioneering great iron ships from the docks once again all designed and built by brunel and sail directly to new york
