Photographer's Note

Mallard's World Record was set 75 years ago ( last year to be accurate, ) and to record the event all five of her remaining sister locomotives were brought together to commemorate the occasion. Two were brought back from North America especially.

Last week the National Rail Museum at Shildon put on a display of all six, and while I was not so fortunate as to attend one of the special photo events, did manage a flying visit for an hour just before closing time. Just time for the obligatory visit to the footplate ( Dwight D Eisenhower ) and a few gloomy pictures.

You may have seen much better images in the press, but since Shildon is woefully under-represented here on TE, I thought I would upload one of mine to mark the event.
