Product details

The finish of the Hornby R3454 OO Gauge Castle Class GWR 4-6-0 Drysllwyn Castle 5076 is Pristine. DCC Type: DCC Ready Livery: GWR Class: Castle Designer: Charles Collett Entered Service: 1923 Period: 1920s Purpose: Express Passenger Wheel Configuration: 4-6-0 By the time Charles Collett took over from George Churchward as Chief Mechanical Officer of the Great Western Railway at Swindon in 1921, holiday traffic from London to Devon and Cornwall was demanding heavier trains and the GWR management were devoting proportionally more money and resources to West of England services, from Paddington, than to any other routes. Collett's solution was to take the basic 4-6-0 layout of the existing Star Class, keeping the same frame layout and wheel spacing and adding a newly designed No.8 boiler which was both larger and lighter.
