At the time it was built the King Class locomotives like 6023 were amongst the most powerful express train engines built. The GWR King Class locomotives, the most powerful built by the GWR, handled the principal GWR expresses on the main line from London to the West of England and on the GWR main line to Birmingham and Wolverhampton, including 6023 King Edward II, until 1962 when the class was withdrawn.
