Product Description

6220 was built in 1937 at  Crewe Works the first of its class of streamlined locomotives. It, along with others was given a special livery of Caledonian Railway blue with go faster. stripes instead of the more conventional red.

During a press run on 29 June 1937, 6220 set a new speed record on the West Coast Main Line Driver TJ. Clark and fireman C. Lewis (with Robert Riddles (engineer) and inspector S. Miller on the footplate), pushed the Stanier pioneer to a claimed speed of 114 miles per hour on Madeley Bank south of Crewe, which broke the previous record of 113 mph set by the rival LNER

However, the celebration was premature, as the footplate team realised the train was still making 110 mph only a mile and a half from Crewe Station. Urgent braking improved matters, but the locomotive passed through the station's reverse curves at 57 mph, well in excess of the 20 mph limit; the resultant buffeting alarmed the passengers and knocked loose various dishes and utensils in the dining coach.

Though the record now lay with the LMS, the scare led to both companies declaring an unofficial truce.
