Manufacturer description
In response to the London & North Eastern Railway's 'Coronation' sets which were hauled by their A4 Pacific locomotives, the London, Midland, Scottish Railway Board announced the advent of a similar train, the 'Coronation Scot', to run over their route. This would be covering the 4 miles between Euston and Glasgow in 6 hours, at an average of 61.7 miles an hour. The train ran non-stop between Euston and Carlisle, covering the 299.1 miles in 4 hours, 43 minutes at an average speed of 63.4 mph which, in 1937, was the longest booked run at over 60 mph in the world.
