In common with many other railways the Great Western favoured outside cylinders with inside valve gear, in this case operating piston valves outside the frames via rocking levers. Other railways moved to outside valve gear, but the Great Western stuck to this arrangement right up to the end of it's existence.

The connecting rod drove on the middle driving axle. Notice the braking arrangement - a central pull rod running under the loco. August 2019.
