72000 Clan Buchanan was one of the first five of the class which were all withdrawn from Polmadie in December 1962. The Clans had Britannia pattern main frames and driving wheels but with a smaller boiler, firebox and cylinders than the Britannias. Originally intended for use in Scotland the first five of the class were diverted from new to Carlisle Kingmoor instead. The following five all went to Polmadie, whilst plans for an additional fifteen Clans to be included in the 1952 New Construction Programme were cancelled.
