Firefly - GWR Firefly Class
Great Western Railway GWR Daniel Gooch Firefly Railway Art Print
Designed by Sir Daniel
Gooch, the Firefly class would number 61 in total and remain in service from
1840 until 1870. Benefiting from the stability afforded by the broad gauge then
in use, several of the class are recorded to have worked at the then
unprecedented speed of 60mph.
