The GWR 4073 Class or Castle class locomotives are a group of 171 4-6-0 steam locomotives of the Great Western Railway.They were originally designed by the railway’s Chief Mechanical Engineer, Charles Collett, for working the company’s express passenger trains.
The origins of this highly successful design date back to the Star Class of 1907 which introduced the basic 4-cylinder 4-6-0 layout with long-travel valves and Belpaire firebox that was to become synonymous with the GWR.
