GWR Churchward "43xx" Class 2-6-0


Class Types
GWR Class 4300

General
Designer Churchward
Introduced 1911
Big Four Great Western Railway
Description (1957) Churchward mixed traffic 2-6-0's, with 5' 8" wheels, built between 1911 and 1932. The class originally ran complete from 4300-4399, 5300-5399, 6300-6399, 7300-7321 and 9300-9319. In 1928 most of the 5300 series underwent slight modifications and were given corresponding numbers in the 8300's. From 1944 onwards these gradually reverted to their original 5300 numbers and all had been so altered by January 1948, with the exception of No. 8393, which ran with this number until September 1948 when it eventually reverted to No. 5393. Further inroads have occurred since 1948, chiefly to the 4300 and 5300 series, but in 1958 there were nearly 200 of the class still in service, the 7300 and 9300 series being still intact. In October 1956 it was decided to alter the numbers of 9300-9319 to 7322-7341, and this renumbering is now in progress.
