9400 was one of the last batch of locomotives built at Swindon in 1947 prior to nationalisation. It was initially allocated to Swindon shed where it remained until November 1955 when it was transferred to Old Oak Common.

The superheated boiler was replaced in 1955 with a non-superheting boiler.

Withdrawn in December 1959 from Old Oak Common shed having completed 251,337 miles whilst in service.

The locomotive was selected for preservation as part of the National Collection and went on display in Swindon’s first GWR museum at Farrington Road. It moved from this converted Methodist chapel to the new Steam museum in 2000.
