A scene from back in June 1981 at the Open Day at Crewe Works. Some of the celebrity locos on display are seen here. On the right is green Class 40 no 40 106. On the left is the replica of Sans Pareil, one of the contenders at the famous Rainhill Trials of 1829. The main loco here is without doubt my favourite class of all time. 46229 Duchess of Hamilton is a picture of sheer beauty and power. Originally, this loco was streamlined. The streamlining was not as sleek as that on the A4 Class, but was bulbous and rather ungainly looking. The casing was removed after WW2. For a number of years now, 46229 has been a static exhibit only. At the moment, it is being re-streamlined at the whim of an enthusiasts' magazine, which raised the money for the work through its readers. A terrible backward step in my opinion, to hide the beautiful lines of this lovely engine. Still, I expect I will be shot down for this opinion.
