No. 4468 Mallard – 1938

The A4 class pacifics were designed by Nigel Gresley to haul the LNER’s high speed services, with the first four appearing in 1935. Mallard entered service in March 1938 fitted with a Kylchap double exhaust and chimney, to further increase performance. On 3rd July 1938, during a series of brake tests, an attempt was made to capture the speed record for steam.

No. 4468 Mallard was specially chosen for the task along with usual driver Joe Duddington and fireman Tom Bray. On the descent of Stoke bank a maximum of 126mph was achieved near Essendine, which remains the world record for steam traction. Mallard is shown in the condition it made this run.
