History

 The London Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) Coronation Class is an express passenger steam locomotive type designed by William Stanier. They were an enlarged and improved version of his previous design, the LMS Princess Royal Class, and were the most powerful steam locomotives ever used in Britain at 2,511 dbhp. The locomotives were specifically designed for power as it was intended to use them on express services between London Euston and Glasgow Central; their duties were to include the hauling of a proposed non-stop express, subsequently named the Coronation Scot. The first ten locomotives of the Coronation class were constructed in streamlined form in 1937 by the addition of a steel streamlined casing. Five of these ten were specifically set aside to pull the Coronation Scot. Although a later batch of five unstreamlined locomotives was produced in 1938, most of the ensuing Coronation class were outshopped as streamliners. Eventually, from 1944 to 1949, all new engines would be built in unstreamlined form and all the streamliners would have their casings removed. The last of the 38 locomotives was completed in 1948.

 The Coronation class was probably painted in more styles of livery than any other contemporary steam locomotive class, seven in the LMS era up to 1947 and five more during the British Railways era from 1948. Not all 38 locomotives were painted in these different styles, many were specific to just a few engines. The only style that all 38 wore was British Railways lined Brunswick Green and the entire class was turned out in this smart scheme between 1955 and 1958.

 It was customary on all British mainline journeys to change engines at convenient locations to avoid the lengthy process of re-coaling. The Coronation locomotives were therefore strategically stationed at key points between London and Glasgow and they were allocated to the local shed. The chosen locations were at London (Camden shed), Crewe (Crewe North), Carlisle (Upperby) and Glasgow (Polmadie). It was only in the latter days of steam that the mix of shed assignments became more fluid.

No. 6220 Coronation held the British steam speed record between 1937 and 1938, and 6234 Duchess of Abercorn holds the record to this day for the greatest British power output to be officially recorded on an attached dynamometer car, achieved in 1939. 

After a successful decade of operations in the 1950s, by the mid sixties the class had no useful role to play, and the survivors were scrapped en masse in late 1964. Three locomotives have been saved for preservation.

What are pre-orders?
Pre-orders are as the name suggests, placing an advanced pre-release order on an item. This means that the order you are placing is for the future release of a product that has yet to be released, or re-stocked.

How much are pre-orders?
Pre-order prices are defined at the time based off what we initially received from the manufacturer. This means that when we receive the product (to send to you), manufacturing costs, taxes, and even economic shifts in the country of the manufacturer, could affect the final price when we receive it in store. So, we suggest you use the price shown only as a point of reference, as it may not be derivative of the final price when it is received and ready to be sent to you.

How long do I have to wait for my pre-order?
The wait time depends on the release date of the pre-order product, and the time you placed your order. Pre-order release times also vary per product, per manufacturer, transportation and many other factors. If a release date is given from the manufacturer, please note that this is still subjective due to circumstances out of our control, and this isn’t indicative of our in-store stock date this could be a day or two after the release date.

Why am I being charged for my pre-order, even though the product isnt released yet?
This is pre-payment for an item's payment and delivery costs that isn’t released yet (pre-order) to ensure as soon as it arrives your order can be fulfilled and sent out to you a.s.a.p. Not all orders will be charged shipping depending on size, and total order amount (see our website for current shipping to find out more and our shipping policy for more information).
