EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the majestic King Class locomotive, No. 6028, known as King Henry II. Built in July 1930 by the Great Western Railway (GWR), this remarkable steam engine boasts a powerful 4-6-0 wheel arrangement that allowed it to conquer even the most challenging terrains with ease. Originally named King Henry II, this locomotive played a significant role in transporting passengers and goods across Britain during its early years of service. However, in 1937, following the abdication of his brother Edward VIII, the GWR decided to honor their new monarch by renaming this iconic machine as King George VI. The photograph beautifully captures every intricate detail of this historical masterpiece. From its sleek design to its gleaming black exterior adorned with intricate brass accents and royal insignia, one cannot help but be captivated by its sheer grandeur. Displayed at the STEAM Museum of GWR, this print serves as a testament to both engineering excellence and British railway heritage. It allows us to marvel at an era when steam locomotives were not merely modes of transportation but symbols of national pride and innovation. Whether you are an avid train enthusiast or simply appreciate artistry captured through photography, this image is sure to transport you back in time and evoke a sense of awe for these magnificent machines that once ruled the railways.
