For the last forty years of Great Western steam, the 'Kings' were the acknowledged flagships of the locomotive fleet, the express passenger machines par excellence. During the whole of this time, any loco spotter worthy of the name wished, avidly, to record every one of them in his notebook; after all, there were only thirty of them altogether, and they were confined to a few well-known routes.
As the unmistakable front end of a 'King' came into view in the distance, pulses began to beat faster. It was not difficult to pick out one of these machines. The sheer bulk of the locomotive was one pointer, although to the experienced eye this was not conclusive. At a distance one might be mistaken, for all GWR front ends bore a strong family resemblance to one another. However the curved steam pipes, characteristic of the GW four-cylinder layout, confirmed one's suspicions, for both the 'Stars' and the 'Castles' had a slimmer look about them.
