LNER Coronation - 9 coach train

This train was built in 1937 and received it's name due to the upcoming coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. It was based on the very successful streamlined train built in 1935 called 'The Silver Jubilee', but this was built with all open seating and painted two tone blue, the lower panels being a match for the streamlined A4 locos that pulled it. It was with six coaches of this train, plus the dynamometer car, that Mallard on 3rd July 1938 broke the world record for steam traction at 126 mph.

The train was made up in the following sequence:
