Sir William Stanier's finest locomotive design, as some would say. The LMS Princess Coronation Pacifics were amongst the finest and most powerful express locomotives of their day. I remember these in Liverpool's Lime Street station heading the boat trains from London. Buit in 1933, she was eventually withdrawn in 1962 and spent some of her later years as a static exhibit at the Bulmers Cider Railway Centre in Hereford until it closed in 1990. From there she moved to the East Lancashire Railway and has spent much of her time heading up steam specials on the national rail network.
This is the last of my uploads rom the East Lancashire Railway's Steam Gala of Friday 25th January, although there are a few more in the unassigned bin should I ever run out of pictures to upload. There are also a few more on my Flickr
