Duchess Of Abergele by CJSutcliffe Duchess Of Abergele by CJSutcliffe
LMS Princess Coronation Class 8P 4.6.2 number 46233 "Duchess Of Sutherland" passes through Abergele and Pensarn with the Welsh Dragon from Crewe to Holyhead and return on 19th May 2012.

I'm now awaiting her return through Bangor later on. Seriously, don't go to Bangor. How it is a city is anyone's guess, the high street is dominated by charity shops and empty Fads wallpaper stores (they went under years and years ago, before Jesus was born I think), and none, I repeat, none of the very very few pubs that are open at this ungodly hour of 2pm serve real ale.

What a difference a fortnight makes:

They're majestically beautiful, yet imposing and brutish all in one huge package. They're awesome. :)

I have a model of one that I've painted into BR Blue, if you look in my gallery folder entitled "Project: Coronation" you'll find all the photos and associated info of progress so far. :)

No country has built more sophisticated locomotives during the coal age then Britain, and Stanier, along with Gresley was one of the best designers.

And the funny thing is that during the steam era 1830 to 1960, the British railway companies where closer to the American spirit of rugged individualism and self reliance, then the American ones.

Oh yeah, try buying a ticket from Manchester to Glasgow in 1850, not very easy at all. Buy a ticket to Liverpool, then a ticket to Lancaster, then a ticket to Carlisle, then a ticket to Glasgow, and don't bother trying to buy them all in Manchester, they don't sell tickets for rival companies metals.

Skip forward half a century, what a difference. Manchester to Glasgow sir? Of course, here's one ticket, change at Carlisle. Enjoy the scenery on the Settle and Carlisle line too, the most beautiful line in the country don't you know? :)
