No. 6234 Duchess of Abercorn – 1939

The class was designed to William A. Stanier’s brief, while he was in India. The first appeared as streamliners, but in 1938 it was decided to build five in standard form, of which Duchess of Abercorn was one. On 12th February 1939 No. 6234 made a fast return test run between Crewe and Glasgow. This showed up problems with steaming at high outputs, a twin blast pipe and chimney were fitted and the test repeated on 26th February.

During the return run Duchess of Abercorn recorded a sustained output of 3,300 i.h.p. for five minutes. A record never beaten by a British steam locomotive. Duchess of Abercorn is portrayed in the condition it undertook this record breaking run.

Built: Crewe, August 1938

Double Chimney: February 1939

Smoke Deflectors: March 1946

Withdrawn: January 1963
