The naming of Great Western Railway’s 100 Great Westerners new Intercity Express is the result of a public poll of readers from ten newspapers, who nominated figures from past and present to celebrate some of the most inspiring individuals from the South West region.
The top 50 of GWR’s new Intercity Express trains will bear the names of the 100 Great Westerners – with the first train being named by The Queen in June 2017.
Great Western provides over 50 extra trains to and from Castle Cary to help Glastonbury Festival travellers attend the Worthy Farm event, carrying as many as 15,000 Glasto-goers each year.
Glastonbury 2019 runs between June 26 and 30 at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset.
