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 6400 Class is a class of 0-6-0 pannier tank steam locomotive introduced by Charles Collett in 1932. All 40 examples were 'auto-fitted' - equipped with the remote-control equipment needed for working autotrains. The 1936 GWR 7400 Class was very similar but had no push-pull apparatus, but did have a higher boiler pressure of 180 psi providing a small but useful increase in power. An initial build of 30 in 1936-1937 was added to by British Railways in two batches each of ten locos in 1948 and 1950. These were destined for a short life, the briefest being only nine years. A minor visual difference between the 64xx and 74xx classes was the join between the bunker and cab side. The 64xx had an arc whereas the later class was at right angles.show more
