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.

Graham Farish 371-986 N Gauge BR 6417 ex-GWR 64xx Class Auto-Pannier 0-6-0PT Black Early Emblem

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.

Dapol 2S-007-012 N Gauge GWR 5764 57xx 0-6-0 Pannier Tank Green Lettered Great Western

A well detailed model of a very well-known locomotive, number 5764. Having worked for the GWR (19 years), BR (12 years) and London Transport (11 years) 5764 has been a stalwart of the Severn Valley Railway motive power fleet for over 40 years!

The Dapol model is a highly detailed replica of the GWR 57xx class pannier tanks, powered by a smooth running motor which delivers good performance at shunting and branchline train speeds.

This model of 5764 is painted in the pre-1934 GWR livery, lettered Great Western, the livery which 5764 would have been painted when built and has most regularly carried in preservation.

Dapol 2S-012-007 N Gauge GWR 6 Portishead ex-LB&SCR Terrier 0-6-0T GWR Green Shirtbutton Logo

The GWR received two of the ex-LB&SCR 'Terrier' 0-6-0 tank engines from the Weston Clevedon & Portishead Railway when the independant line closed in 1940, the GWR being one of the major creditors. The more powerful, Portishead, received an extensive overhaul and was used for a number of light shunting roles around Bristol and in the West Country until withdrawn in 1954.
The terriers proved very useful as shed pilot engines at Bristol St Philips Marsh shed as they would fit on the turntable alogn with another tank engine. One of the two was also loaned out to Frys at Keynsham, being small enough to traverse the sharp curves in the chocolate factory and the engines shunted at the temporary army camps created to accomodate American troops prior to the 'D-Day' invasion of Europe.

The different cab roof and rivetted or welded tank construction can be reproduced, while the chassis incorporates a 6-pin DCC decoder socket. Dapol magnetic couplers and standard N gauge couplers are supplied along with a bag of spares and fine details for futher optional detailing.
The side mounted pannier tank design engines were a distinctive feature of the GWR, offering the ability to utilise the efficient belpaire firebox while retaining access to the cylinders, rods and valve gear between the frames without a significant loss of water capacity. Developed from the older designs of saddle tank, many of which had been adapted with pannier tanks to accomodate new belpaire boilers, a small number of GWR 57xx class locomotives sold to London Transport were the last steam locomotives to work 'in service' on the national railway network.
This model if 8700, one of the last 57xx locomotives built with the original square cornered cab, painted in the 1930s green livery with shirtbutton monogram. A long-time Birmingham resident 8700 carried the shirtbutton logo for it's entire working life with the GWR and BR, the monogram still being visible when the locomotive was scraped at Swindon.

Following on from the Ixion GWR Manor class 4-6-0 Dapol have announced their intent to produce a model of the similar larger boilered and heavier 68xx Grange class locomotives.

While highly successful as a class the GWR rebuilt some of the Churchward 43xx 2-6-0 mogul type locomotives into 4-6-0 types. The change to a two-axle, four wheel leading truck provided better riding at the higher speeds which were being introduced for secondary passenger and fast goods trains during the 1930s.
The first class produced from these rebuilds was the 68xx Grange, similar in size to the 49xx Hall class locomotives the Granges featured slightly smaller driving wheels, resulting in a distinctive raised footplate section over the cylinders and 80 locomotives were completed between 1936 and 1939.
