A Brief History
Introduced between 1951 and 1957, the 73000 class represented the brightest and best of the twelve classes of BR standard locomotive, along with possibly the Evening Star 92000 class. They were based largely on the LMS Stanier 5 class, with a few modifications, the most noticeable being the high running plate which had become the norm for BR Standard class engines. Different members of the class were fitted with different size tenders. They were allocated across the regions, 73049 being allocated to the Western Region, where it worked cross country and intermediate passenger duties. It was withdrawn in March 1965.
