LNER A4 Pacific 'Silver Jubilee' Record Breaking Run in 1935

Short newsreel from 1935 depicting one of Sir Nigel Gresley's A4 Pacifics on a demonstration run from London King's Cross to Grantham on the 27th September 1935. The train touched 112.5mph. The Silver Jubilee was designed as a complete streamlined train including streamlined coaches. These had valences between the bogies and flexible covers over the coach ends. Although this restricted their use, it maximised the streamlining effects and proved useful for the LNER publicity campaign. The train had capacity for 198 passengers in 7 coaches: twin-articulated brake third, triple-articulated restaurant set, and a twin-articulated first class.
