The Dean Goods was the workhorse of the GWR goods department from 1883 until the twilight of the Steam era. The final locomotive was withdrawn in 1957. The class had become the standard locos for the lightly built and winding Welsh lines by their withdrawal.
Serving both at home and abroad during two World Wars, the 0-6-0 Tender loco epitomises locomotive practice under William Dean.
GWR 2533 was the first Dean 0-6-0 to be taken over by the WD and completed in Black with the No101.
