Class History

The 58xx class of 0-4-2T tank engines were built concurrently with the 48xx class locomotives and to the same design but without the mechanical and electrical connections for working with auto trailers. These ‘non-auto’ engines were sent to lines were a new, modern engines were needed, but push-pull working was not used. These duties varied from classic rural branches like the Malmesbury line to the GWRs scenic route through the wild Snowdonia foothills from Bala to Blaenau Ffestiniog.Often these lines had significant goods traffic and the use of a dual purpose locomotive was more practical, a 58 being equally at home with a short goods train as with a passenger train of elderly 4-wheel coaches, which were still in use on the Malmesbury train when the 58s arrived, 2-coach B sets or a single brake composite.
On some lines trains ran ‘mixed’ with a few goods wagons following the passenger coach and a goods train brake van carrying the guard at the very rear.The later 74xx panniers (also available from Dapol) joined the 58xx engines in the British Railways period.

Loco History

Completed in August 1933 number 5811 went new to Much Wenlock (Shropshire), before moving to Bala in the following year where, under the control of Croes Newydd (Wrexham) shed. Two 58xx engines were usually allocated to Bala for working trains over the scenic branch line to Blaenau Ffestiniog and 5811 remained on this line until displaced by 74xx pannier tanks in the mid-1950s. Stored at Craven Arms in July 1956 5811 was officially allocated to Oxford in February 1957 but, if it worked at Oxford at all, was evidently soon needing works attention and was withdrawn from service at Swindon in May.
