Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Great Western Railway 4700 Class was a class of nine 2-8-0 steam locomotives, numbered 4700 through 4708. They were the final locomotives designed by George Jackson Churchward and were introduced in 1919-1921 for fast goods work. Although built for freight, the class sometimes hauled passenger trains, notably heavy holiday expresses in the summer. The 4700 Class was intended for a quite different role than the 2800 Class. The 2800s were small-wheeled mineral haulers with 4 ft 7 in driving wheels. The 4700s used the 5 ft 8 in driving wheels and the cylinders from the 4300 Class Mogul, and were intended for express goods trains.show more
