AboutThe railways were, and still are, a place of new ideas, designs and inventions. The Great Western Railway dared to be different and strove to be the best.
Spark of Genius is a special exhibition which celebrates the forward-thinking ideas of the GWR. The exhibition takes a look at eight individuals who have followed in the footsteps of Isambard Kingdom Brunel – the father of Great Western innovation.
From signalling, to locomotive design and from building tunnels to modernising stations, Spark of Genius explores a wide range of inventions that helped shape the Great Western Railway.
Spark of Genius complements STEAM's other special exhibitions that opened earlier this year: Time on Trial and World's Fastest, which explore the GWR's race to become the fastest railway in the World.
Admission to view Spark of Genius is included with STEAM admission and free to STEAM Season Ticket holders.
