And later the Great Western Railway got the most beautiful locomotives of  
all times!

I don't know the current status, but some years ago here in Argentina  
around 40% of the railroad system were using "wide gauge" = 1676mm, wider  
than standard but not as wide as the original GWR.
Now most of the passenger lines are defunct and cargo lines trend to use  
narrow gauge = 1000mm so the proportion may be much smaller now.
