Mallard 75 – Celebrating Britain’s Steam Record

Mallard 75 – Celebrating Britain’s Steam Record

The Great Gathering

On July 3rd 1938, A4 class locomotive Mallard sped down Stoke Bank on the East Coast Main Line in Lincolnshire at 126mph, setting a new locomotive world speed record. This record still stands today.

The 4468 Mallard was built by London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) at Doncaster. Designed by Nigel Gresley (1876-1941), its wind-tunnel tested, aerodynamic body and high power meant it could easily reach speeds of 100 mph. Following the record attempt Mallard went into regular service until it was retired in 1963.

In 2013, the National Railway Museum in York is marking the 75th anniversary of Mallard’s achievement with a series of commemorative events, including opportunities to see the record breaker united with its five surviving sister locomotives, a family reunion on an international scale.

The centrepiece of the celebration is a two week long international family reunion for the record breaker and its five surviving sister locomotives, 3-17 July 2013, a never-before-seen gathering of all six surviving A4s. Two A4s have been temporarily repatriated from their home museums in Canada and the US to take part in the 75th anniversary celebrations.

Dominion of Canada and Dwight D Eisenhower arrived on UK soil last October for the first time in nearly 50 years. Their epic journey included a 2,527 mile voyage across the Atlantic. The newly cosmetically restored Dwight D Eisenhower and Dominion of Canada are now on display in the Great Hall in York alongside Mallard who has also been given a fresh coat of paint in keeping with its status as the world’s fastest steam locomotive.

The three operational A4s, Sir Nigel Gresley, Union of South Africa and Bittern will be taking a two-week break from rail tours around the UK to help us celebrate the 75th anniversary in style. They will join Dwight D. Eisenhower, Dominion of Canada and Mallard on display at York from late spring, gathered together around the Great Hall turntable at York.
