Dampflokomotiven - Great Western Railway: Bücher (2/3)

Bildbände über die Geschichte, Typen und Technik der Dampflokomotiven der Great Western Railway (GWR, 1833-1947) (2/3).

Great Western - Grange Class Locomotives - Their Design and Development (Locomotive Portfolio)

Churchward proposed a 5ft 8in wheeled 4-6-0 for mixed traffic duties in 1901 and it was seriously considered in 1905, but it took until 1936 before his successor, Charles Collett, realised the plan by persuading the GWR Board to replace many of the 43XX moguls with modern standard mixed traffic engines that bore a remarkable likeness to the Churchward proposal.

David Maidment has written another in his series of 'Locomotive Portfolios' for Pen & Sword to coincide with the construction of a new 'Grange' at Llangollen from GW standard parts to fill the gap left by the total withdrawal and scrapping of one of that railway's most popular classes - to their crews at the very least.
As well as covering the type's design and construction, the author deals comprehensively with the allocation and operation of the eighty locomotives and in particular has researched their performance and illustrated it with many examples of recorded logs from the 1930s as well as in more recent times.
As in previous volumes, the author has added his own personal experiences with the engines and has sourced more than 250 photos, over 40 of which are in colour.

Great Western Halls & Modified Halls (Locomotive Portfolio)

The gradual growth of the railways in Britain during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, in both passenger and freight traffic, saw the requirement for a more powerful and versatile type of motive power - mixed traffic locomotives.
The construction of Great Western Halls and Modified Halls gave the Great Western a superb all round locomotive, and for thirty-six years they operated passenger and freight services over the Great Western, and later Western, Region.

The Hall class were among the largest mixed traffic steam locomotives running throughout the country, and this book is the first serious volume to focus on them in fifty years.
The book charts the history of both classes, from their construction and withdrawal, to their design, development and eventual scrapping. With over 200 black and white and colour photographs, accompanied by informative captions, many members of the class are excellently illustrated. It will appeal greatly to those interested in the history of Great Western Locomotive development.

GWR Locomotives: The Hall Class

A fascinating illustrated insight into this iconic Hall Class of locomotuves used by the Great Western Railway. The Hall class 4-6-0, itself a development of the celebrated Saint class, represents the precursor of thousands of mixed traffic 4-6-0 engines that were built for Britain's railways and were the breadwinners in all types of work and conditions.

The 328 examples of the Hall class and the Modified Hall class powered Britain through the Second World War, as well as providing the bulk of the revenue-earning services on both the GWR and BR.
We are fortunate that both Halls and Modified Halls survived into preservation and their proud story continues with an assured future on many heritage lines.

Great Western Manor Class (Locomotive Portfolio)

The 30 Manor class 4-6-0s were designed by CB Collett in 1938, and built by the Great Western, and the Western Region at Swindon in two batches, 20 in 1938/9, and 10 in 1950.
In order to save money the first 20 members of the class were built using parts from withdrawn 4300 class 2-6-0s, and were coupled to refurbished Churchward 3,500 gallon tenders. The lighter 4-6-0s Manors were given 'blue' route classification which allowed them to work over many secondary lines.
The construction of the Manors completed the final stage of Collett's plan to provide a full range of 4-6-0 tender locomotives for Great Western passenger services.

Over the years the Manors saw extensive use on services in the South West, West Wales and ex-Cambrian Lines in North Wales. They provided motive power for both the 'Pembroke Coast Express' and the 'Cambrian Coast Express'.
Many of the class lasted to the end of steam traction on the Western Region, with the last examples being withdrawn in November 1965. Remarkably of the original 30 members of the class no fewer than 9 have survived.

In this book, author Laurence Waters charts the history of the class from their construction at Swindon in 1938, right through to the final withdrawals in 1965. Using many previously unpublished black and white, and colour photographs, accompanied by informative captions, each member of the class is illustrated.
This book should appeal to those interested in the history of Great Western Locomotive development as well as modellers of the Great Western and Western Region.

GWR Locomotives: The Manor Class

A fascinating illustrated insight into this iconic Manor Class of locomotuves used by the Great Western Railway. The Manor class 4-6-0s were introduced for lightly laid lines and so were popular on the Cambrian Coast Express as well as the Newcastle-Swansea port-to-port express. Although only thirty were ever built, almost one third of the class has survived in preservation, such is the fondness felt for it by enthusiasts.

One dedicated group spent fifteen years restoring Foxcote Manor from scrapyard condition and there are other instances of such sacrifice and hard work, allowing these engines to live on.
We are fortunate that these locomotives survive into preservation and their proud story continues with an assured future on many heritage lines.

GWR Locomotives: The Prairies

NEU

Known as the Prairies, these tank engines of the 2-6-2T variety were some of Churchward's earliest designs and were the precursor for successful variations of one of the classes - numbered 51XX until 1949.
There were two basic types, the smaller type for branch lines and the larger type mostly for outer suburban work in London and Birmingham, but also used as banking engines at Sapperton, Rattery, Hemerdon and Dainton inclines.
The smaller 45XX class started off as a class of seventy-five engines, but were eventually developed by Collett into a class more than double the size. They saw service on the St Ives portion of the Cornish Riviera Express and the Pwllheli portion of the Cambrian Coast Express.

Profusely illustrated throughout and packed with technical detail, Allen Jackson tells the story of the Great Western Railway's Prairie class locomotives.

Great Western Saint Class Locomotives (Locomotive Portfolio)

Churchward's 2 cylinder Saint Class 4-6-0s were arguably one of the most important locomotive developments of the twentieth century. The seventy-seven members of the class were so successful that most of the other railway companies in the UK used the same 2 cylinder 4-6-0 formula in the design of their own mixed traffic locomotives.

Over the years the Saints saw a number of modifications, with many of the class passing into BR ownership. The last member of the class, no. 2920 Saint Martin, was withdrawn from service in 1953 and was sadly not preserved.
However, the Great Western Society are now constructing a replica Saint at Didcot Railway Centre. Numbered 2999 it will be named Lady of Legend.

In this book author Laurence Waters charts the remarkable history of the class from the construction of the prototype Saint at Swindon in 1902, right through to the final withdrawals in 1953. Using many previously unpublished black and white photographs, accompanied by informative captions, each member of the class is illustrated.

This book should appeal to those interested in the history of Great Western Locomotive development as well as modellers of the Great Western and Western Region.

Great Western Star Class Locomotives (Locomotive Portfolio)

Designed by G.J. Churchward, no. 40 was constructed at Swindon in April 1906. It was Swindons first 4 cylinder simple engine and was the forerunner of Churchwards famous 4 cylinder Star Class 4-6-0s. Initially built as a 4-4-2 Atlantic, no. 40 was named North Star in September 1906, rebuilt as a 4-6-0 in 1909, and renumbered 4000 in 1913.

Including no. 40, the Star class eventually numbered seventy-three locomotives, all built at Swindon in batches between 1906 and 1923. In service the Stars proved to be both free-running and reliable locomotives, and for many years were used to haul the Great Westerns top link services, including the world-famous Cornish Riviera Express.

The introduction of the Collett Castle Class 4-6-0s in 1923, and the King Class 4-6-0s in 1927, saw the Stars relegated to secondary passenger, freight and parcels services. A number of Stars were rebuilt by Collett as Castles, including the prototype no. 4000 North Star, but the remaining Stars continued to give good service.
At Nationalisation in 1948, no less than 47 of these fine locomotives passed into Western Region ownership, the last example, no.4056 Princess Margaret, being withdrawn in October 1957.

In this book, Laurence Waters charts the history of the class from the prototype, right through to the final workings in October 1957. Using many previously unpublished photographs from the Great Western Trust photographic collection, accompanied by informative captions, every member of the Class is illustrated.
