Originally part of the Great Western Railway (GWR), this line has always seen a substantial amount of traffic, much of it keeping to the main line through Reading. Steam locomotives of the King, Castle, Hall and other classes were commonplace on passenger trains.

In the days of steam few would have predicted that express trains along this route would include the HST type, with a single-ended locomotive at each end of the train. Even fewer would have predicted that the freight services would be in the hands of powerful, yet relatively quiet, diesel locomotives built by General Motors in the USA and Canada.

The route has always carried a wide range of expresses, local trains and freight services. These are illustrated throughout the ages, along with the varied station architecture and industrial premises once served.
