LMS Princess Coronation Class 6220 Coronation Featured Print

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

Miss England speedboat - world water speed record Featured Print

Miss England speedboat - world water speed record

Miss England III, last of a series of speedboats used by Henry Segrave and Kaye Don to contest world water speed records in the 1920s and 1930s. The picture appeared on the cover of The Modern Boy magazine in April 1932 to accompany an article inside written by Kaye Don who declared he would break the land speed record. He did so on 18 July 1932, when he set a new world water speed record of 119.81 mph (104.11 kn; 192.82 km/h) on Loch Lomond. The record stood until August, falling to a new four-engined Miss America X at 124.91 mph (108.54 kn; 201.02 km/h). Don declined any further records, and Miss England III went to a museum. Date: 1932
