Issue Cover

Heritage Railway  |  Mallard - Greatest Steam Moment  


Mallard 75 is being published to coincide with one of the greatest occasions in the history of worldwide railway preservation.

On July 3 1938, London & north Eastern Railway A4 streamlined Pacific No. 4468 hit 126mph on Stoke Bank on the East Coast Main Line in Lincolnshire, snatching the world steam speed record from Nazi Germany. Mallard’s official record has never been beaten.

Mallard 75 the bookazine looks at the story of LNER chief mechanical engineer Sir Nigel Gresley and the glamorous A4 locomotives that he built to pull fast luxury express trains between London and Edinburgh..

Lavishly illustrated with pictures both ancient and modern, it tells the history of the development of the A4s up to Mallard’s world speed run, what Mallard has done since 1938, and detailed biographies of each of the five other survivors at the Great Gathering.

The full story of how the North American pair were brought back home and painstakingly cosmetically restored to showpiece condition, the 90mph runs by sister A4 Bittern on the East Coast Main Line organised in connection with the event, and many pictures of the Great Gathering itself are be included.
