Caledonian Park Clock Tower Metropolitan Cattle Market

The Caledonian Park Clock Tower - a Grade II*-listed structure, as the centrepiece of a vast cattle market. The Metropolitan Cattle Market opened in 1855 in Holloway, then on the very fringes of London. The site replaced the ancient Smithfield Cattle Market, whose central location caused frequent problems, with drovers and animals clogging the streets. The seven-storey tower presided over the market until it closed after World War II. The area was later transformed into the Market Estate and Caledonian Park. Date: circa 1908

LMS Princess Coronation Class 6220 Coronation

LMS Princess Coronation Class 6220 Coronation - built in 1937, which special livery of Caledonian Railway blue with go-faster stripes! On 29th June 1937, the locomotive set a new speed record on the West Coast Main Line of 114 miles per hour on Madeley Bank north of Crewe. Unfortunately jubilation was to become consternation as the footplate team realised the train was still making 110 mph only a mile and a half from Crewe station. Urgent braking improved matters but the locomotive passed through the stations reverse curves at 57 mph, well in excess of the 20 mph limit; the resultant buffeting alarming the passengers and destroying a quantity of crockery in the dining coach!! Date: circa 1937
