Of the smaller classes, the 2021 was most often autofitted, and 655 and 1076/1134 amongst the large wheel classes, but odd ones and twos of 1901, 1501 and 1016 classes received the gear from time to time. The GWR Class 800’s are very nice trains and are now in passenger service. Bunker capacity was another area of significant updating, and usually involved increasing the length of the frame at the rear. 24 September 1926. Has High …

Swindon chimed in with the 1076 class in 1870. They were mostly scrapped in the 1920s and early 1930s, with the last survivor (1047) going in summer 1935. The first six (1076–1081) had side tanks, 4'9" front overhang and 5'2" rear overhang, and had boilers similar to but smaller in diameter than Q class.

It would eventually receive pannier tanks in 1918. These three classes tended to merge over the years, and are often treated as one. Some of these locos were probably autofitted prior to this programme, and 1271, pictured here, had in fact been the first recorded autofitted Buffalo in 1915 (when still a saddle tank). Most of these locos were given belpaire fireboxes, pannier tanks and Swindon boiler fittings.

The gap between the tank and cab front is prototypical. There are two steps and two upper handrails on each side of the tank. These images of preserved 3738 courtesy of John Darch. From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository.

868, still with early dished smokebox door and snaphead-riveted tanks has a Churchward bunker in the upper picture, and a few years later, below, has acquired a Collett bunker. Autofitted Buffalo 1235 near Laira on 1 May 1925.

The fire iron hooks on the bunker rear are welded on, and are of a 'squarer' shape compared to the previous 'curvy' style that had been standard under Dean, Churchward and Collett. A dozen Buffalos were fitted with P class boilers and large (1200g) tanks between 1925 and 1930. About half got enclosed cabs and/or enlarged fireboxes.

The boiler in particular would take longer to repair than the rest of the locomotive, so by the beginning of the 20th century an alternative boiler (and matching water tanks) would be fitted as soon as the rest of the locomotive was ready in order to bring the locomotive back into service.

This small class of eleven locos had a complicated history, some originating as tender engines in 1861 to a Daniel Gooch design.

For information on the building dates and the builders of the 57xx/8750 classes, see John Daniel's listing, 7755, one of the locos built by the North British Locomotive Co, at Llanelly c 1938, David Magill's weathered Minerva 7mm pannier. The boiler feed pipes go in this space. Image courtesy Kevin Dare. The trains come in formations of 5 and 9 cars, providing faster, higher capacity, more ecological trains on the aforementioned intercity routes. At nearly 48tons when full, these locos were some of the largest and heaviest of the outside-framed panniers, and spent most of their lives hauling heavy coal trains. Seventeen locos retained (or in a couple of cases reacquired) saddle tanks until scrapping.

1077 in original condition with side tanks. Brass RTR Locomotives; Final U.K. projects in production. Brake rods on the Wolverhampton small tanks were behind the wheels.

In the event everything changed, and many had a very short lifespan. The class had a distinctive form of slotted frames.

Under British Railways ownership the 57xx spread around the system: for instance a pair worked as banking engines in Folkestone harbour 11. segment tank. Later engines did not have the cover.

I suspect that when an autofitted locomotive came into the shops then the gear might be removed and fitted on one just about to leave in order to maintain the desired number of autofitted locomotives in service.

Three 0-6-4T crane tanks were built – the first of which appeared in 1901. These locos were fitted with enclosed cabs with characteristic rectangular windows in their fronts, and most of them received extended tanks and smokeboxes, as shown on 1271, at a later stage (usually.

1581, with the later standard three-segment tank and a medium-height chimney, at Worcester in April 1923. Some of the earlier locomotives had very considerable increases in weight over the years – the early 302 class for instance, 35tons 13½cwt when built, weighed 43tons 2cwt in their final condition with P class boilers and other changes 8.

The filler is behind the dome, and there are two steps and two upper handrails on each side.

The pipes exit the cab front and go under the boiler cladding. Thus there was a mixture of small and large classes fitted, although the large ones selected were among the less powerful types. Superheating history for the pre-grouping pannier classes in their later years can be deceptive. It has a topfeed boiler, but it is not known whether the feed pipes appear directly from the side of the boiler beneath the topfeed location or are routed on the top of the tank. The inner frame springs of the middle axle are mounted above the axle, and this unusual feature can also be seen in the 1054 picture below.

In 1950, 57xx and 8750 class locos were reclassified from 'blue' to 'yellow' route restriction, in consideration of their low hammer-blow. Unusually for a Buffalo, the loco has acquired a set of Collett parallel-body buffers. 9417 also illustrates the position of the rear steps, attached to the side hanging plate.

In Collett style he took the earlier locomotives as a model, and the 57xx could be regarded as being essentially a 1930s condition 1854 with the larger cylinders of the 2779 series of the 2721 class. From 1902 the last batches were built with a Belpaire firebox and a domeless boiler, but still with saddle tanks. The 850 class had a 7'4" + 6'4" wheelbase, 4'7" front and 6'3" rear overhangs and smaller 4' wheels.

The position of the filler, above the small tank handrail, was moved forward on other locos in the first batch and on later batches.

This squarer shape was also carried by the other 15xx and 16xx Hawksworth pannier classes.

The brake hangers on the 5700 class were 'twin strips', whereas the 8750 had a more substantial cast version.

The locos were fitted with larger-diameter (16") Collett buffer heads, reflecting the increasing adoption of that size for many locos working with long autotrailers from the mid-1920s onwards.

Topfeeds were fitted to the boilers from WWII onward. The cab and bunker are lined, but the tank is not.

Because of the interchangeability of boilers, this boiler might well not be the same design (or even class) as the one that came off. The other pannier tank classes built by the GWR in the 20th century were the very small and light 1366 class and the very substantial 15xx.

8791, ex-works at Swindon, in 1934. Posing behind a couple of tank-lifting rings, this is the casing fitted over the topfeed on the topfeed boilers fitted from 1944. The 2027 picture adjacent, with its tanks removed in 1957, shows the chimney is seated conventionally on the smokebox. These locos were significantly wider (tanks, cab, bunker), at 8', compared to the 7'5" body width of other Buffalos, and they had 8'6"-wide footplates.

The saddle tanks were 1080g capacity, and the later pannier tanks were 1095g.

Like the 633 these were built as side tank engines, but with open cabs. They were numbered 16–18, and all were named ("Hercules", "Cyclops" and "Steropes" respectively). A strange mixture of a pre-WWI tall chimney and a post-1924 Collett bunker on a domeless 2118 in saddle tank mode. As noted below the 'small' 5400 and 6400 Collett classes would have been equally capable as the 'large' 655 and 1134, and no 5700 or 9400s ever seem to have received the gear. Early (side tank and saddle tank) locos had low coal capacities, but increased frame length and bunker capacities began to feature at a very early (c 1870) stage. By the time Collett took over the older outside-framed engines were getting on for fifty years old, and replacements were required.

751, fitted with pannier tanks since 1915, gets a new lease of life in 1929 with an enclosed cab and new bunker, but would be withdrawn a couple of years later. When a major overhaul was due the GWR would dismantle a locomotive virtually down to its component parts 5. They were scrapped early, mostly in the late 1920s, the last going in 1934.

All but 11 of the 1016 were eventually fitted with pannier tanks. Vacuum gauge for train pipe and vacuum chamber, Sight-feed lubricator for regulator, valves and cylinders, Reducing valve for carriage-warming steam, The finale to the large pannier tanks was Hawksworth's 9400 class. 5700, in works grey, in 1929.

However, the RCTS volumes detail an immense amount of work on subtle and less subtle boiler changes, topfeed, superheating and so on.

They had a Standard 21 boiler (basically a Standard 11 but with drumhead smokebox). As with the 5700 class Collett had to develop replacements for older locomotives reaching the end of their lifespan. When more powerful autofitted engines were required in BR days the equipment was fitted to some 4500 class small prairie 2-6-2 locomotives. An immaculate 1173 with a six-segment tank, possibly in November 1902 after receiving an S4 boiler.

According to one source, Some 850s and 1901s received lengthened frames and rear overhangs, and thus larger bunkers. Picture date unknown. This page was last edited on 20 June 2018, at 12:03. Note the style of 'between spoke' wheel balance weights. 1581 was one of the few Buffalos never to be fitted with pannier tanks, and lasted until 1929. A small handrail to assist accessing the filler has not been fitted, despite the large tanks.

A dozen or so locos of the class were allocated to west country sheds. The first 50 of the 5700 were constructed by the North British Company. Many but not all were given enclosed cabs. The style of the footsteps on the front of the tanks changed from a simple flanged one on the 57xx class to a welded one with turned up sides on the 8750.

Middle batches had O or Q class boilers and some of the last batches a shorter boiler, which was closer to the P class. Probably early 1920s. The autofitted Buffalos disappeared in 1937, being superseded by members of the 64xx class.
