To commemorate the 75th anniversary of her Record Run from London to Glasgow on 16-17 November 1936, the owners of Stanier Pacific No 6201 Princess Elizabeth joined with Vintage Trains to rerun the northern legs of the journey from Crewe to Glasgow and return, on the weekend of 12 - 13 November 2011.

So it was that the Princess, her crimson lake livery resplendent in the morning sun, appeared at Crewe today, complete with an exact replica of the special '703' headboard worn on the original run. She picked up her load of 9 coaches and a Class 47 diesel, and set off confidently northward.
