No. 2512 Silver Fox – 1937

The A4s were designed by H. N. Gresley to haul the LNER’s new streamlined Silver Jubilee service. No. 2512 Silver Fox was the fourth A4 pacific built and from its first appearance had stainless steel boiler bands and foxes mounted each side of the boiler. The foxes were supplied by steel makers Samuel Fox & Co. Ltd.

On 27th August 1936 No. 2512 Silver Fox, with driver George Haygreen and fireman C. Fisher, achieved 113 mph while hauling the southbound Silver Jubilee. This is thought to be the highest ever attained by a British steam locomotive in revenue-earning service. Silver Fox is shown in 1937 condition after the fitting of longer buffers.
