Mallard and the Gresley A4s

Ever since their spectacular entry into service in September 1935, the charismatic and uniquely streamlined Pacific type (4-6-2) “Gresley” A4s have been at the forefront of thousands of British railfans’ affections. They reigned supreme on the East Coast Main Line for more than 75 years, from the days of Gershwin through to the time of the Beatles, racing from London to Scotland. One, Mallard, set the steam locomotion land speed record. Produced with the full co-operation of the National Railway Museum and presented by Nigel Harris, Steam Railways Managing Editor, the fascinating story and development of Sir Nigel Gresley’s famous A4 class is dramatically told. This exciting video features rare archival film material, black and white still photos plus outstanding contemporary video footage highlighting surviving A4s in action on many main line rail tours and private railways. A classic video that gives you the background to the [not seen here] 2013 reunion display of six A4s at the National Railway Museum in York, England, including two North American guests: our own Dwight D. Eisenhower (from Green Bay) and the Dominion of Canada from Canada. Highly educational and entertaining – see, for example the interior workings of the dynamometer car that recorded the speed record. Published in the UK by Telerail in the 1990s and distributed in the USA by Goodheart Productions.
