The light pacifics were designed by O.V.S. Bulleid to work over the restricted secondary routes of the Southern Railway. Two naming themes were used; ‘West Country’ and the ‘Battle of Britain’. The ‘West Country’ locomotives were named after cities, towns or geographical features in the western section of the Southern Railway.
Salisbury was the second member of the class built and was named after the Wiltshire city served by the Southern Railway. Salisbury was the oldest member of the class to avoid rebuilding by British Railways. It is shown as running in 1966 fitted with AWS and BR speedo and attached to a cut-down 4,500 gallon tender.
