A Brief History

Glastonbury may be famous for it's music festival, where each year hordes of young people descend upon the ancient town to listen to loud music, drink copious amounts of cheap lager and pitch their tents in muddy fields for a few nights. However, Glastonbury is a fine West Country town set in rolling hills and a truly pastoral setting. It has a fine Cistertian abbey, a haven of peace and tranquillity, and it is small wonder the GWR should choose to name it's early Star class of locos after such delightful settings.

The Star class appeared from Swindon as the first of a long line of four cylinder express engines which included the Kings and Castle class of locomotives. They were genuine forerunners of GWR locomotives for the remainder of the steam era.
