The Stroud Special train - just the ticket!
The Stroud Special train from London Paddington was the brainchild of Max Comfort of Stroud Common Wealth who noticed that the commuter trains to the capital were coming back empty in the morning and again in the evening en route to pick up returning workers. He approached the Chamber of Trade and Commerce and First Great Western and it led to this great idea.
