GWR 111 The Great Bear
The Great Bear, number 111, was a locomotive of the Great Western Railway. It was the first 4-6-2 locomotive in the United Kingdom, and the only of that type ever built by the GWR, who subsequently persisted with the tried and true 4-6-0 locomotive type. It was later rebuilt as a Castle Class locomotive.
