G3 LMS Duchess Class in Crimson Lake
LMS Duchess Class
Designed by Sir William A. Stanier the first of these
magnificent streamlined locomotives was built at Crewe in 1937.
With a tractive effort of 40,000lb these 4 cylinder locomotives
were extremely powerful and can be seen as a response by LMS to
the LNER A4's built less than 2 years earlier. In fact many
maintain that if it were not for the storm clouds of World War
II gathering that the LMS Coronation could have snatched the
world speed record for steam away from the A4 Mallard.
The first locomotive "Coronation" gave its name to the Class and
was out-shopped in striking blue and silver livery. A set of
nine Coronation Scot coaches were specially prepared in
blue/silver livery to match the locomotive. This period
represented the height of the golden age of steam with rivalry
between the big four companies driving innovation to create some
of the most iconic locomotives ever to run on British rails.
The first locomotives out of Crewe works were originally built
as streamliners. Later some were built without streamlining. All
of the streamliners were finally all rebuilt in un-streamlined
form and all eventually featured double chimneys.
The locomotives were produced in a variety of liveries in BR
days including maroon, blue and lined green.
Duchess of Hamilton currently preserved and returned to its
original streamlined form.
