GWR MODIFIED HALL CLASS HISTORY

The Great Western Railway Hall Class is a class of 4-6-0 mixed traffic steam locomotives designed by Charles Collett. In 1924, C.B. Collett modified No. 2925 ‘Saint Martin’, Churchward’s design of the 4-6-0 ‘Saint’ Class. The alterations to No. 2925 included the fitting of 6’ 0” diameter driving wheels, re-alignment of the cylinders and fitting a modern ‘Castle’ Class cab. Further changes took place before the new ‘Hall’ Class began construction. The boiler pitch was modified, and outside steam pipes were fitted.
