These range from the railway’s sole “Pacific” The Great Bear, which the Chief Civil Engineer would only allow to run between Paddington and Bristol, a Star Class 4-6-0, a two cylinder Saint Class of the same wheel arrangement for lighter passenger duties and the “Atlantic” Ivanhoe, one of a small class built while comparisons were being made between the 4-6-0 and 4-4-2 wheel arrangements. There is a nostalgic look back at the 4-2-2 bogie single by William Dean – arguably the most beautiful late Victorian locomotive. The last of these were coming to the end of their working lives when this Souvenir was published. Some of the locomotives from the Dean to Churchward transition, a couple of freight locos and two tanks complete the selection. A super collection of formal locomotive portraits suitable for framing.
