Manufacturer description
In 1903, George Churchward, Chief Mechanical Engineer of the Great Western Railway, embarked upon his locomotive improvement scheme with three types of 'standard' class engines, of which his 2-6-2T design was destined to become probably the GWR's most useful locomotive, lasting in traffic until the last month of Western Region steam operations in December 1965.
