The GWR 2800 class was designed for heavy freight use and was the first 2-8-0 wheel arrangement design in the UK. 84 were built. It proved to be a very successful design, capable of hauling far more than its original specification. When the first locomotive was withdrawn in 1958, after 55 years service, it had travelled 1,319,831 miles. 6 have been preserved.
The GWR 2884 class was a refinement of the 2800 class and used for heavy freight trains. 83 were built. The main differences were a more enclosed cab with side windows and the addition of outside steam pipes from the smokebox. 9 were preserved.
The GWR 2884 class in British Railways livery. The 2884 was popular with crews and the BR Western Region management requested more be built, but the more powerful BR Standard Class 9Fs were provided instead. Many remained in service until the end of steam in 1965.
