Era 3 (1923 to 1947) The Big Four (LNER, LMS, GWR and SR)
6201 'Princess Margaret Rose' entered service in 1935, named after the then five-year-old daughter of Albert, Duke of York (later King George VI), Princess Margaret Rose, the younger sister of Queen Elizabeth II. The locomotive was used to haul LMS passenger trains from London to the north and northwest of England and to Scotland.
After nationalisation in 1948, British Railways renumbered the locomotive 46203 before it was withdrawn from service in 1962. 'Princess Margaret Rose' was one of two Princess Royal Class locomotives to be preserved and was restored to mainline specification in 1990 before later being placed on static display in the West Shed at Swanwick Junction.
* Class names often change over the lifespan of a locomotive, so this is not necessarily the class name used by the operator in the period modelled.
