In the mid-1930s, eminent locomotive engineer Sir Nigel Gresley produced plans for the A4 Class Pacifics, which were specially built to work a new high-speed express, the 'Silver Jubilee'. From the start, the class caused a sensation and immediately secured the admiration of the general public. Photographs of every locomotive in the LNER and BR periods are included. Over a dozen A4s feature in a chapter dedicated to the 1946 renumbering. The A4s are shown at major centres on the East Coast Main Line, such as King's Cross station, Peterborough, Grantham, Doncaster, York, Darlington, Newcastle and Edinburgh Waverley. Also, images taken during the twilight years in Scotland are included. The surviving engines are seen at several locations in the country - Aberdeen, Glasgow and Perth. Some class members have been photographed at sheds when being serviced, or under repair at workshops.
