The class was noted for its streamlined design, which not only improved its aerodynamics, increasing its speed capabilities, but also created an updraught to lift smoke away from the driver's line of vision, a problem inherent in many steam locomotives particularly those operated with short cut off valve events; fitting smoke deflectors was an alternative solution. The next five withdrawals, in December 1962, were 60003 Andrew K. McCosh, 60014 Silver Link, 60028 Walter K. Whigham, 60030 Golden Fleece and 60033 Seagull. Price: £25.00. Gresley introduced the Class A4 Germany in 1933, Gresley had been inspired by the high-speed streamlined "Flying Hamburger" diesel trains, and indeed the LNERhad considered purchasing similar trains for use from London to Newcastle.

Bachmann OO Wooden Presentation Box LNER A4 '4489' 'Dominion of Canada'. Following the commercial success of the Silver Jubilee train, other streamlined services were introduced: The Coronation (London-Edinburgh, July 1937) and the West Riding Limited (Bradford & Leeds-London & return, November 1937) for which more A4s were built. 4489 Dominion of Canada looks stupid with a bell. [11] Prior to the record run on 3 July 1938, it was calculated that 130 mph (210 km/h) was possible, and Driver Duddington and LNER Inspector Sid Jenkins both said they might well have achieved this figure had they not had to slow for the Essendine junctions. LNER Class 4-6-2 A4 Pacific No. To remain competitive with rivals and increase passenger numbers, the LNER wanted to release faster train services.

Tuplin's method for grading steam locomotive performance based on both power output and duration of effort, this was the highest value ever achieved by any British locomotive, at Grade 26.[18]. [16], Although A4s were primarily designed for high speed express work they were also capable of high power outputs. Another two (Dominion of Canada and Dwight D. Eisenhower) were donated to the Canada and the US, respectively, upon withdrawal by British Railways. [9] On the other hand, the German train was four coaches long (197 tons), but Mallard's train had seven coaches (240 tons). [12] Deficiencies in the alignment of the Gresley-Holcroft derived motion meant that the inside cylinder of the A4 did more work at high speed than the two outside cylinders – on at least one occasion this led to the middle big end wearing to such an extent that the increased piston travel knocked the ends off the middle cylinder[13] – and this overloading was mostly responsible for the failure. 4498 Sir Nigel Gresley. LNER Class A4 No. Subsequently, some other A4s were later renamed, usually to names of directors of the LNER. [citation needed] History repeated itself with the inside big end being replaced by one of the Great Western type, after which there was no more trouble, provided maintenance routines were respected. The highest recorded power output from an A4 was 2450 drawbar horsepower when Mallard herself was hauling 11 coaches (390 tons tare, 415 tons gross) up Stoke Bank at a sustained 80 mph in 1963.

LNER Class A4 60008 "Dwight D. Eisenhower". She is a 4-6-2 locomotive built to the same design by Sir Nigel Gresley as the more famous Mallard. The application of internal streamlining to the steam circuit, higher boiler pressure and the extension of the firebox to form a combustion chamber all contributed to a more efficient locomotive than the A3; consumption of coal and water were reduced. No other British steam locomotives have a longer or more consistent record of high speed running than the A4s. One locomotive was withdrawn and scrapped after being damaged beyond repair in a German bombing raid on York on 29 April 1942 during World War II – No.4469 Sir Ralph Wedgwood, which at the time had been overhauled and was based at Gateshead.

[22], Improved methods of aligning the Gresley conjugated valve gear in the 1950s led to tighter tolerances for the bearings used within it and consequently to almost total eradication of the overloading of the middle cylinder. In August of 1948, 60028 Walter K. Wigham managed to perform a nonstop service run from King's Cross to Edinburgh, setting the record for distance traveled for 408.65 miles. One of the first two Hornby Dublo locomotive models produced, in 1938, was an A4. Many similar designs, including the contemporary Coronation class, had their streamlining removed or cancelled to cut costs, simplify maintenance and increase driver visibility. It should also be remembered that A4s operated on the East Coast Main Line which has more opportunities for high speed running (particularly Stoke Bank) than any other in the UK. Trix produced an 'OO' scale model A4 from 1970; it was re-branded as a Liliput model in 1974 and survives to this day in modified form as a Bachmann model – Kader, Bachmann's parent company, had bought Liliput in 1993. 4489, named Dominion of Canada, is a 4-6-2 "Pacific" Steam locomotive built May 24th, 1937 at Doncaster Works especially for the prestigious "Coronation" service.
