Lot 375: Nos. 7029 Clun Castle and 4079 Pendennis Castle hauled specials from Banbury and Oxford respectively to Chester, to mark the end of through trains between Paddington and Birkenhead. The Great Western declared their engine to be more powerful than its bigger LNER rival, and in terms of tractive effort alone they were entitled to do so. From its development and initial production in the early 1920s to the demise of steam traction in the 1960s, the Castles were the mainstay of the GWR and BR (W) locomotive fleet. Length GWR LOCOMOTIVES CASTLE CLASS ‘O’ GAUGE. No. The origins of this highly successful design date back to the Star Class of 1907 which introduced the basic 4-cylinder 4-6-0 layout with long-travel valves and Belpaire firebox that was to become characteristic of GWR express passenger locomotives. Both proposals were rejected by the GWR Board of Directors. AU $83.78 + shipping .

Hornby R2402 GWR 4-6-0 6800 Grange Class loco Hardwick Grange 6818 - boxed. [3] The increased amount of steam that this produced allowing an increase in the cylinder diameter from 15 in × 26 in (381 mm × 660 mm) to 16 in × 26 in (406 mm × 660 mm). In 1864 Gooch was succeeded by Joseph Armstrong who brought his standard gauge experience to the workshops at Swindon. Temporary fitted with oil firing in the 1940s. 4082 Windsor Castle. They incorporated most of the characteristics of contemporary GWR express passenger locomotive practice and Stars turned out of Swindon works from 1910 onwards were equipped with the Swindon No. Sold to Quainton Road, Bucks and left as the 36th departure from Barry March 1973. Lot 234: Nos. 7029 Clun Castle is a railway locomotive, built to the Great Western Railway Castle Class design shortly after Nationalisation by the Western Region of British Railways at the ex-Great Western Railway Swindon Works in May 1950 and named after Clun Castle. List of GWR 4073 Class locomotives From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Below is a list … There are very low numbers of each name and livery and some are pre-ordered so please contact us for availability on e-mail. Collett's solution was to take the basic layout of the Star with an extended frame, and add a newly designed No.8 boiler which was both larger and lighter. In the original Castle class design to achieve the maximum possible heating surface of the firebox and grate area, the water space between the inner and outer fireboxes had been made narrower than previous standards. As of 2019 [update] , only 7029 is operational and has a valid main line certificate. Castle class builds from number 5033 of 1935 incorporated for the first time a speedometer. 84 x 1 inch 342 were built from 1911–1932. 'Alfloc' water treatment fitted 1954.         1932         (5013 - 5022) to lot number 280, This has recently started to be reversed with the introduction of pan-European loading gauge standards on some mainlines, mainly originating from ports. They were designed by the railway's Chief Mechanical Engineer, Charles Collett. After the Battle of Britain in 1940, twelve Castle's, numbers 5071 to 5082, were renamed in honour of the types of aircraft that flew in the Battle. Between 1937 and 1940 a further ten members of the 'Abbey series' of the Star class (Nos. 5 feet 9 inches George Jackson Churchward was an English railway engineer, and was chief mechanical engineer of the Great Western Railway (GWR) in the United Kingdom from 1902 to 1922. HORNBY 00 GAUGE - R2390 - GWR GREEN 4-6-0 KING HENRY II LOCOMOTIVE DCC FITTED. 163.76 square feet

They proved to be a successful design which handled the heaviest long-distance express trains, reaching top speeds of 90 mph, and established the design principles for GWR 4-cylinder classes over the next twenty-five years. Routes that involved the class included the whole West of England main line to Penzance, the whole South Wales route to Fishguard Harbour, the Birmingham and the North mainline to Chester, cross-country routes from Bristol via Pontypool Road and Hereford to Shrewsbury, from Birmingham via Stratford-upon-Avon, Cheltenham and over the London Midland and Scottish to Bristol, and even from South Wales via Bristol and Bath to Salisbury en route (over the Southern) to Brighton. 4079 was originally planned to operate on the mainline following completion of its ongoing overhaul, but a later announcement by Didcot where they intend to stop operating on the mainline means it will only run on heritage railway's. The Borough of Swindon commissioned a new coat of arms when it became a unitary authority in 1997. [6] The smaller wheels also allowed for a wider boiler within the loading gauge to be used. Scrapped by Swindon Works. Although Collett was nominally responsible for the design of the class, the detailed work was undertaken by his Chief draughtsman Frederick Hawksworth. Churchward for mixed traffic duties. 6000 King George V, appeared in June 1927. Orders for other names are welcome and need to be received before production commences. The Great Western Railway 3200 Class was a design of 4-4-0 steam locomotive for passenger train work. AIRFIX/GMR 54122 LMS BLACK 0-6-0 FOWLER CLASS 4F LOCO/ TENDER V.NEAR MINT BOXED .

[7], It was originally intended that the class be named after notable cathedrals, but, following an invitation to feature a GWR locomotive in the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad's (B&O) centenary celebrations, the GWR decided to make them more notable by naming the class after British Kings.[5]. Heating surfaces, tubes Its first shed allocation was Old Oak Common. 6 tons [2], In April 1925, Star class No. Again the GWR took the honours with Caldicot Castle burning less fuel and always ahead of time, this being illustrated on the last 2 days of the trial by gaining 15 minutes on the schedule in both directions. Well, that's open to debate. Scrapped at Cox & Danks, Oldbury. 14 x 5 1/8 inches Electrical pick-ups on locomotive and tender wheels for very smooth running. This was coupled with the widely known (but as yet unpublished) findings of the Bridge Stress Committee, which gave engineers a better scientific understanding of the impact of hammer blow, and enabled the GWR Civil Engineer to agree to raise the maximum allowable axle-loading to 22.5 long tons (22,900 kg) for the new ‘Super Castle’ class.[4]. 4088 Dartmouth Castle.

D The layout of the frame and the spacing of the wheels was the same, but the cylinder diameter was increased from 15 to 16 inches although the boiler pressure remained at 225 pounds per square inch. The new, 16 feet 0 inches (4.88 m) long, GWR ‘Standard No.12’ boiler was used on only this class. The Castle Class locomotives were built as express passenger locomotives on the GWR. The late Professor W A Tuplin described the 'Castle' locomotive as a glorified 'Star' especially since the design was based on that engine. 5051 Drysllwyn Castle is a railway locomotive, built to the Great Western Railway Castle Class design built by the Great Western Railway at Swindon Works in May 1936 and was named after Dryslwyn Castle. Collett was sufficiently confident of the design to place an order with Swindon railway works (Lot 224) for ten locomotives in 1923, although there was a four-month delay between the appearance of the first example in August 1923 and the second in December, to allow for the correction of any teething problems. This reduction did not have any adverse effect on the steaming performance as it was normal practce to run with a deep fire built up in 'hay-cock' fashion, and rather than pure grate area, it was the ability to burn coal economically that gave the Great Western locomotives their qualities. As a result of its previous 7 ft 1⁄4 in (2,140 mm) broad-gauge system, the GWR had the largest loading gauge of all the pre-nationalisation railways in the UK. More about Pullman dining. 31,625 pounds So the 'Star' class, forerunners of the 'Castles', prevailed. As this year would also mark the 100-year celebrations of the Great Western, certain Board members had noted that America and German locomotives began to sport streamlining to … On taking up office in 1922, Collett began to develop the more powerful GWR Castle class from Churchward's Star class. 4090 Dorchester Castle .

Scrapped at. Faced with a choice of either not operating their locomotives on the mainline or modifying to allow them to pass within the current restricted UK loading gauge, private societies choose to reduce the height of their locomotives by 4 inches (102 mm) by: reducing cab and chimney height; modifying some upper pipe work.

Details: Castle class, 100 A1 to 4099    Details: Castle class, 5000 to 5049     Details: Castle class, 5050 to 5099 The Castle class was noted for superb performance overall, and notably on the Cheltenham Flyer during the 1930s: for example, on 6 June 1932 the train, pulled by 5006 Tregenna Castle, covered the 77.25 miles from Swindon to Paddington at an average speed of 81.68 mph start-to-stop (124.3 km at an average speed of 131.4 km/h). One member of the class, number 5006 Tregenna Castle   achieved a record on June 6, 1932, by hauling the up Cheltenham Flyer, at that time the World's fastest train, from Swindon to Paddington in 56 minutes 47 seconds for the 77.3 miles, against a schedule that was normally 65 minutes. Initially the large number 7 boiler was planned for the Castle design, but after concerns by the Chief Engineer regarding the maximum of 20 ton axle limit, a new slightly smaller number 8 was introduced.

The Great Western panache was provided by restoration for the first time after World War I of the copper-capped chimney and polished brass safety-valve cover. 5098–99, 7000-7 delivered May–July 1946. 5068-82 delivered June 1938 – June 1939.

Flue tubes, no. No. Heating surfaces, superheater 'Alfloc' water treatment fitted 1954. He therefore proposed fitting the 6 ft (1.83 m) diameter boiler used on his 4700 Class 2-8-0 on to a 4-6-0 chassis, in 1919, to create a more powerful express locomotive, but was prevented from doing so by the weight restrictions on the GWR main line. Bogie wheel diameter [18] [19] Four engines are in the process of undergoing overhauls with two planned to operate on the mainline. Airfix/GMR (and later Dapol) also produced an OO model; Tri-ang released a TT gauge model; and Graham Farish (later Bachmann) released N gauge models.
