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 6959 Class or Modified Hall Class is a class of 4-6-0 steam locomotive. They were a development by Frederick Hawksworth of Charles Collett's earlier Hall Class. The Modified Halls marked the most radical change to Swindon Works' practice since Churchward's time as chief mechanical engineer. Hawksworth's use of plate frames throughout the design was a daring break with Churchward's practice. The cylinders were cast separately from the smokebox saddle and bolted to the frames on each side. A stiffening brace was inserted between the frames and extended to form the smokebox saddle. The exhaust pipes leading from the cylinders to the blastpipe were incorporated into this assembly.show more
