No. 2509 Silver Link – 1935

Designed by Nigel Gresley to haul the LNER’s new streamlined Silver Jubilee service between London and Newcastle, No. 2509 Silver Link was the first A4 pacific to emerge from Doncaster works. The LNER organised a publicity trip for their new service, run on 27th September 1935, for invited guests and members of the press.

It was hauled by Silver Link and crewed by Kings Cross driver Arthur Taylor and fireman Jack Luty. The fully streamlined train of seven coaches averaged 100 mph for 43 miles and continuously sustained over 100 mph for 25 miles, with a peak of 112 mph near Sandy. Silver Link is shown in the condition it made this historic run.
