The 61XX class locomotives were, like many others, developed from earlier designs. Collett’s 61XX Class owes its beginnings to locomotive No.99 designed by Churchward in 1903. The 61XX Class were almost identical to the earlier 51XX and later 81XX Class.
They did however, have an increased boiler pressure which resulted in a greater tractive effort. The 61XX Locomotives spent their working lives on the Paddington suburban services.
They were required to haul heavy trains at quite fast speeds and due to the increased boiler pressure were able to cope well with traffic demands.
In GWR days standard unlined green livery was carried. B.R. applied both lined black and lined green liveries to the class.
