The A4 class pacifics were designed by Nigel Gresley to haul the LNER’s high speed services. No.4489 was one of five locomotives allocated to the new 1937 Coronation service, each named after a constituent of the British Empire and carrying appropriate armorial bearings on the cab side.
It was fitted with a five-note chime whistle, presented by the Canadian Pacific Railway, when named Dominion of Canada. In March 1938 a Canadian Pacific bell was fitted in front of the chimney, along with new stainless steel nameplates, which is the condition it is portrayed in. On withdrawal Dominion of Canada was donated to the Canadian Railroad Historical Association.
