Just imagine the days of the LMS in the 1930s when 6201 Princess Elizabeth was built to run express passenger trains the length of the West Coast Mainline. On this page you can marvel at an LMS Princess Royal Pacific being built at Crewe Works – 6207 A Study in Steel, watch footage of 6201 shortly after being built (‘Royal Scot’ film), and other period footage of the LMS and its operations.
Here you can also watch the story of how the locomotive was preserved and restored back to mainline running order in the 1970s, so that we can all enjoy the sights and sounds of one of the most impressive steam locomotives ever built.
