That one single ideal was the main driving force for the CME of the GWR, Charles Benjamin Collett, who was naturally intent on pursuing the beliefs of his former governor, George Jackson Churchward, the brilliant engineer who initiated the succession of GWR locomotives by designing the prototype No ’40’ named as ‘North Star’ and built as an Atlantic The reason he decided on this wheel arrangement was for comparison purposes, having persuaded the GWR Board members that the French De Glehn 4-cylinder locomotives were far superior to our machines and furthermore made the case for purchasing 3 of those engines, including No ‘La France’ left which was used to haul the inaugural ‘Cornish Riviera Express’ in and continued to work the train for many years.
The Alfred De Glehn design was of a compound engine; high pressured inside cylinders driving the second axle, with low pressure outer assemblies motioning the first drive axle, a system recognised as ‘Divided Drive’ which Churchward adopted for ‘North Star’ and also copied the taper boiler design and replicated the Belpaire firebox, with the styling of the leading bogie also taken from the De Glehn ‘Locomotive Manual’.
Thus ‘North Star’ was the starting point for the famous ‘Star’ class, paving the way for the superb ‘Castles’, which were soon found to be both economical and powerful locomotives; capable of handling the passenger expresses of the day. Thus the Locomotive Committee of the directors appealed to the Civil Engineer to relax the limitation on axle loading, but found that any new structures were allowed 22 tons of loading for 4-cylinder engines; furthermore there were just 4 bridges that were in need of strengthening and the Bridge Stress Committee were requested to put the work in hand as soon as possible, as well as asking for an extra half a ton leeway; this was subsequently granted.

Share Sexual encounters in MEP offices in the European Parliament as recently as last year A secret love letter in which Farage declares his devotion to her with ‘heart and body’ That the affair helped propel her into depression, self-harm and suicide attempts That Farage’s wife Kirsten — now estranged — was behind Ms Fuller’s dramatic ejection from a Ukip celebration party in Ms Fuller’s decision to speak out is all the more remarkable as both she and Farage have repeatedly dismissed rumours of a liaison.
Farage has described the claims as ‘malicious and cowardly’. Within the party, however, knowledge of the relationship appears to have been widespread. One MEP, speaking on condition of anonymity, said: I have spoken to Nigel about the relationship in the past and know Annabelle and Nigel were still involved sexually until late last year. Today, in a perceptive and at times troubling account of their deception, Ms Fuller describes how the affair helped drive her into mental illness and life-threatening self-harm before a successful course of therapy.
She believes that only by telling the truth will she be able to put her life ‘back on track’.

As the end of the ride approached, at an altitude of 6, ft, the horizontal safety barrier that sits across the lap of skiers was raised to allow skiers to alight. The boy was therefore unable to free himself in time and the lift, now travelling at a speed of 18 feet per second, had turned back on itself and had begun its decent down the mountain.
Witnesses said as the youngster desperately fought to free himself he slipped and was suspended from the lift by his clothing that had ridden up around his neck and was throttling him. One local report said: Horrified holidaymakers looked helplessly from the slopes below. The boy was unconscious when we reached him,’ said a spokesman for the lift company. He had to be resuscitated at the scene before being taken to hospital. Witnesses said the boy was hanging by his clothing as the lift began its descent file picture A police inquiry is under way to explain why the safety system, known as a gate, which stops the lift if a skier has not alighted at the top was not activated.
