GWR 4-6-0 4000 ‘Star’ class. Designed for heavy express passenger trains, 73 were built between 1906 and 1923. Following various experiements with 3 French engines, the design incorporated some of the best technology from the French designs. The four cyclinder, 4-6-0 design was so sucessful it became the basis for all subsequent GWR heavy passenger engines and the pacific (4-6-2) design, popular with other railways, was never embraced by the GWR, with only one prototype ever being built. The last Star was withdrawn in 1957 and 4003 ‘Lode Star’ has been preserved, after covering more than 2 million miles.
