A GWR Star Races a Storm
20" x 24". Alkyd. 1991
The 'Stars' were a 1906 Churchward design, a four-cylinder version
of his 'Saints'. These engines were much used on the West Country
expresses until the more powerful Castles (and, later, Kings) became
available. They were named after Stars, Kings, Queens, Knights,
Princes, Princesses and Abbeys. The last batch were built in 1922/3.
They saw service into the 1950s.
