Propane (/ ˈ p r oʊ p eɪ n /) is a three-carbon alkane with the molecular formula C 3 H 8.It is a gas at standard temperature and pressure, but compressible to a transportable liquid.
GWR KING CLASS by Derek Dean Maybe it now sounds simplistic, but the natural progression in steam locomotive lineage terms, following the most excellent 'Castle' class was a longer, larger beefed-up engine that was capable of hauling heavier trains at faster speeds.

General accounts. Duffy and Rutherford are the more important references listed (there must be several more which need to be added; notably the RCTS history) to condemn the absurd waste of effort in producing a range of "standard" locomotives which only added to the diversity of types running at the end of steam.
