Castle Class Locomotive Great Western Railway Art Print by Artist Stuart Booth


Though designed by Charles Collett, the Castle class of locomotives owed much to the Star class of Collett's predecessor, George Churchward. Indeed the first Castle class locomotives were actually modified Stars with the first, 4073 Caerphilly Castle, being delivered in 1923 and immediately being hailed as Britain's most powerful locomotive. This Castle is seen skirting the famous coastline around Dawlish with the Torbay Express in later BR days.
