GWR

Locomotives built for the Great Western and BR Western Region.
The GWRs' 64xx class of pannier tank locomotives was designed specifically to provide a locomotive for push-pull 'auto train' working which delivered more power than the 0-4-2 tank engines. The engines met the operating departments requirements for up to four trailer coaches to be hauled during peak hours and for introducing the more economical auto-train working over routes with stiffer gradients than the 4-coupled engines could manage.


The addition of this locomotive to the Bachmann range nicely complements the 57xx/8750 class shunting engines to further increase the variety of GWR branchline motive power. Bachmann are also producing a model of one of the later design of auto trailer coaches to complement these engines.
Era 4, 1948-1956. NEM coupling pockets. DCC Ready. 6-pin decoder required for DCC operation. Length 67mm.

The Graham Farish Castle is to be completely retooled, creating a detailed, fine scale replica of these powerful express passenger engines. A number of options are being designed into the new tools, providing for single or double chimney and other fittings and detail differences.

The GWR Castles were a true landmark locomotive, among the most powerful and efficient locomotives in Britain during the 1920s and incorporating the full development of G J Churchwards' engineering vision. Both the LMS and Southern built express passenger engines based on Castle specifications, while Gresley pacifics were re-designed to incorporate the findings of comparative trials.
Equally at home on express passenger or fast milk and goods trains 171 locomotives were built between 1923 and 1950, serving until the end of steam on the Western.

This model of 5070 Sir Daniel Gooch is painted in the full British Railways lined green express passenger livery with later lion holding wheel crest. Please note this is a change from the model listed in the catalogue.

The Great Western Railway (GWR) was a British railway company that linked London with the south west and west of England and most of Wales. It was founded in 1833, received its enabling Act of Parliament in 1835, and ran its first trains in 1838. It was engineered by Isambard Kingdom Brunel who chose a broad gauge of 7 ft 01/4in, but from 1854 a series of amalgamations saw it also operate 4 ft 81/2in standard-gauge trains; the last broad-gauge services were operated in 1892. The GWR was the only company to keep its identity through the Railways Act 1921, which amalgamated it with the remaining independent railways within its territory, and it was finally wound up at the end of 1947 when it was nationalised and became the Western Region of British Railways.
