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 London was built streamlined in 1943, although it only lasted in this form for five years.
It spent the majority of its working life based at Camden (London) working prestigious trains such as The Royal Scot and The Caledonian. No. 46245 City of London is portrayed after emerging from overhaul in December 1957, when it was the first of the class to be turned out in BR Maroon with LMS style lining.
