Designer Churchward
Introduced 1910
Big Four Great Western Railway
Description (1957) Churchward 2-8-0T's, 4' 7½" wheels, for heavy short-haul mineral traffic, built 1910-1940. In all 205 engines were constructed to this design: Nos. 4200-4299 and 5200-5294 between 1910 and 1930, and a final ten in 1940. In 1934, Nos. 5275-5294 were reconstructed as 2-8-2T's and renumbered 7200-7219, while in 1935-6 Nos. 5255-5274 were similarly treated and became Nos. 7220-7239. These were followed in 1937 by fourteen more reconstructions from the earlier locomotives which were duly renumbered 7240-7253, their original numbers having been 4239, 4220,4202,4204,4216,4205,4234,4244,4249,4209,4219,4240,4210 and 4245 respectively. Rather strangely ten further engines were built in 1940 as 2-8-0T's, numbered 5255-5264, but they are, of course, entirely different engines from those which at first bore these numbers, and which are now 2-8-2T's Nos. 7220-7229.
