Mallard 75 - The Gathering

On the 3rd of July 1938 A4 class locomotive Mallard reached 126 miles per hours coming down Stoke Bank. That world speed record for a steam locomotive still stands. To mark the 75th anniversary of the record breaking run the other five remaining A4 class locomotives still in existence have come to York Railway Museum for two weeks to stand alongside Mallard in the great hall.

They look stunning, and this is one popular exhibition!


  1. Looks like all the railway fans are there!

  2. Great news coverage and what a fabulous train. You captured the atmosphere, for sure!
