The 30 King class 4-6-0s were the GWRs most prestigious express passenger engines. When introduced in 1927 they were the most powerful steam locomotives in Britain. The most famous was No. 6000 King George V which visited the USA for the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad centenary. It was preserved on withdrawal in 1962 and after steam had finished on British Railways it broke the ban when it returned to main-line operation, setting the scene for todays numerous steam specials.
