This Steam Classics records the story of the restoration to main line steam work of one of Sir William Staniers magnificent Princess Coronation class Pacific s built for the London Midland and Scottish Railway, number 6233 Duchess of Sutherland . After a complete overhaul she was restored to her former glory and her early runs form the main part of this film. City of Truro is a tribute to the graceful Edwardian locomotive, at work on the railways of Great Britain, on both main and preserved lines between 1985 and 1992 after she was resorted to full working order by the Severn Valley Railway. After just over a quarter of a century s front line service, Princess Margret Rose was bought by Sir Billy Butlin as a children s amusement in a holiday camp. When the children tired of her she was rescued once again and restored to main line use by the members of the Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust at Butterley in Derbyshire. This is her story- from Pwellhi to Paddington. Illustrated by evocative footage of the engine working on the British railway network in various guises, this programme traces the story from the time when the Flying Scotsman returned from Australia after achieving its most recent record the world s longest non-stop run behind steam up to its acquisition by the nation and the National Railway Museum in York.
