The streamlined Princess Coronation class were designed to William A. Stanier’s brief while he was in India, by his very able team, to haul the new ‘Coronation Scot’ and other heavy express passenger services on the West Coast route to Scotland. City of Coventry was built streamlined in 1940, appearing in the streamlined red and gold livery.
City of Coventry spent nearly all its working life based at Camden (London) working prestigious trains such as The Caledonian and The Royal Scot. It also served as the Royal locomotive for a time. City of Coventry is portrayed in 1950 condition in the blue livery given to the top line express locomotives by British Railways at that time.
