Mallard 75

I'd like to divert your attention to the celebrations at the National Railway Museum in York, England. On 3 July 1938, a London and North Eastern Railway Class A4, the no 4468 Mallard set the world speed record for steam trains at 126 miles per hour.

Please click on the picture below to go to the NRM's celebration webpage dedicated to the Mallard, and click here to read more about this locomotive from an earlier entry on this blog.

My parents live just around the corner from the NRM, and they said that on the first day of this celebration the line to the front door was halfway into the city, about a kilometre long and two deep.
