Between 1927 and 1930, 29 steam locomotives of the GWR Class 6000, also known as the King Class, were constructed. These engines were named after notable English kings, and this regality was reflected in their sleek angular lines and rivets that shimmered in the light. The regal class boasted taper boilers, copper-capped chimneys, and brass bonnet safety valve covers. Much of the class was in service on the West of England main line between Paddington and Wolverhampton.

No. 6009 ‘King Charles II’ was constructed in March 1928. After nationalisation in 1948, it was painted in a BR Black livery. ‘Alfloc’ water treatment was fitted in 1954 and a double chimney in May 1956. Withdrawn in September 1962, 6009 was scrapped at Cashmore’s.
