The PANNIER PAPERS No.1 94XX, 84XX, 34XX
Being a part of the Irwell Press 'The Book of the Pannier Tanks'
Intended to Make Up into a Set as a Volume in the Famous 'Book Of' Series
Something 'a little less Victorian looking'
The 94XX 0-6-0PTs were designed by F.J. Hawksworth, last Chief Mechanical Engineer of the Great Western Railway. They eventually came to 210 in number; a further hundred in the 84XX series and the final ten, 3401-3409. Though a pure GW design they were GW engines, just; only the first ten, 9400-9409, were actually constructed at Swindon and were the only ones built in GW days. The remaining two hundred were all built by outside contractors spread over a number of years, 1949-1956.
