The GWR 0-4-0ST steam locomotives were acquired by the Great Western Railway at the 1923 grouping. They came from small railways (mostly in South Wales) and from contractors. Some of them survived into British Railways ownership in 1948 and a few are preserved.

Replicas[edit]

Andrew Barclay no.1964 (an industrial locomotive built in 1929) has been painted to resemble GWR 701 and operates on the Chasewater Railway.

In fiction[edit]

The character Percy the Small Engine from The Railway Series takes some influences, particularly the water tank, from the 1340 0-4-0ST, but also from the larger 0-6-0ST 1361 class.[original research?]
