No. 7029 Clun Castle – 1965

The Castle Class was an enlargement of G.J. Churchward’s Star class and was designed by C.B. Collett, the first appearing in 1923. The class was added to over the next 27 years, with many changes being made along the way. No. 7029 Clun Castle was one of the ‘5098’ class, appearing after nationalisation in 1950.

In 1959 it was fitted with a double chimney and four row superheater, plus the mechanical lubricator was moved to beside the smokebox, giving better access to the inside motion. Clun Castle is portrayed in the condition it hauled the last scheduled steam service out of Paddington, the 4.15 pm train to Banbury, 11th June 1965. It has been preserved.

Built: Swindon, May 1950

Double Chimney: October 1959

Total Millage: 618,073

Withdrawn: December 1965
