GWR named locomotives from 1923

4-4-0 'Bulldog' number 3312, later 3311

This listing provides continuity between the groupimg of 1923 and the listing at 1948.

Where there were earlier names carried, these are shown in italics.

Where only an italicised entry is shown, the name was removed prior to withdrawal.

This occurred for a number of reasons, including to avoid duplication, for political reasons, and to avoid confusion

with destination stations.

The third column shows the pre-1912 number, where appropriate; also other number changes.

The last column shows the class detail for the first of each locomotive type.

Rebt: rebuilt and renumbered
