There can be few more iconic classes of express steam locomotive than the 'A4' class of Pacific designed by Sir Nigel Gresley for use on the LNER's East Coast Main Line. These stylish locomotives dominated East Coast services for a quarter of a century until replaced by another design that became a classic - the 'Deltic' class. After a swan-song for some of the class on Glasgow-Aberdeen expresses, the last of the class was withdrawn in 1966. Six survive in preservation, with two examples being on display in North America. This book includes highly detailed 4mm scale drawings along with a comprehensive selection of both colour and mono photographs that illustrate the considerable variety of liveries carried by the locomotives during their careers and the detail differences that marked out each individual locomotive at particular dates. The locomotives were constructed at Doncaster and operated over the East Coast Main Line from London to Peterborough, Doncaster, York, Darlington, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen, Wakefield, Leeds and Bradford.
