Originally built as Ogmore Castle in May 1939 at Swindon Works, the engine was one of the many popular GWR Castle Class. After transfer to Cardiff, the engine was renamed Defiant in January 1941, commemorating one of the many types of aircraft which had taken part in the Battle of Britain. The name Ogmore Castle later rotated through sister engines 5056, 7007 and 7035. After the arrival of Britannia class Pacifics on the Western Region of British Railways, in 1959 it had moved to Carmarthen, staying there until its final move to Llanelli in May 1961.
