This book, published to coincide with the electrification of the line through to Leeds and the introduction of the new "Electra" locomotives, outlines the history of the East Coast Main Line from King's Cross, from the 1870s to the present day. The line has witnessed some remarkable examples of high-speed train running from its earliest years. Patrick Stirling's single-wheelers of the 1870s, the dramatic "Races to the North" of the 1880s and 90s, Grisley's masterpiece "Pacifics" of the 1920s, the streamliner era of the 30s , including "Mallard" and her sisters and as the "Deltic" diesels and especially the Intercity 125 units of more recent years all contribute to panorama of locomotive development.
