Nominate the heroes that make the South West great

Help decide the 100 greatest westerners of all time by casting your vote today – the top nominations will get a new GWR locomotive named in their honour.

The South West has been home to some of the country’s most inspiring figures, including engineers, businessmen and women, and social reformers. And to this day, the area continues to produce outstanding public figures.

Great Western Railway is looking for you nominate local heroes – past or present – from the fields of sport, charity, community, business, arts, entertainment and academia from across the West Country to be acclaimed as one of our 100 Great Westerners and potentially, have one of GWR’s new fleet of locomotives names in their honour.
