Coronation Streamliner IN THE WORKSHOP NOW!!!

TC2 Streamlined Coronation 4-6-2.

Rivalry between the L.M.S. and L.N.E.R. railways resulted in Gresley producing the streamlined A4. To counter this Sir William Stanier introduced the Streamlined Coronation (or Duchess) class. The first five were produced in Caledonian blue with silver stripes to run with similiar liveried coaches. (See sidelines coaches website.) later batches of Streamliners were produced in standard maroon livery with gilt stripes to match standard coaching stock livery. In 1937 6220 Coronation held the world speed record of 114 m.p.h. By the end of World War Two all Streamliners had been de-streamlined to reduce maintenance time.(See kit TC5)
