One of 38 Coronation Class 4-6-2s built by the LMS under the design of Sir William Stanier. Duchess of Hamilton is very much part of the National Collection now and was brought back into main line use in the 1980s.
In this programme we look at her main line runs starting with her test runs in 1990 following her second major overhaul promoted by The Friends of the National Railway Museum.
Featured in this profile are 46229s runs over the Settle - Carlisle Railway; those over the North Wales route to Holyhead; to Scarborough and into the south of England from Paddington.
We end the profile on Duchess of Hamilton at the museum at York, where she is currently on display for all to see.
