The Great Western's two-cylinder 4-6-0s - the Saints, Halls, Granges, Manors and Counties -have never had quite the acclaim given to their bigger sisters, the Stars, Castles and Kings, which worked most of the top line express passenger trains and inevitably took the records of fastest, heaviest or best known. Yet some of the lighter 4-6-0s were occasionally called on to work principal express passenger trains turn and turn about with freight and parcels services, for these were the GWR's maids of all work, the do-almost-anything and go-almostanywhere types. The Saints with their 6ft 81in driving wheels were primarily passenger engines designed for the lighter expresses and secondary services, but the Halls, Granges and Manors were decidedly mixed traffic types though designed for much more specific uses. The Manors for example were planned for cross country routes where heavier types were barred while the Halls were equally at home on the Cornish Riviera Express in Cornwall, where the mighty King class never turned a wheel, and fast Broccoli perishable freights or the milk trains coming out of the Duchy.
