Flying Mallard and a Tornado


A load of clips from Mallard and Tornado’s journey from the National Railway Museum in York to it’s sister museum, Locomotion, in Shildon, County Durham. The entire route was packed with people jostling for position and waving at the most famous locomotive in the world: the 72-year old world speed record holder, “Mallard”. By the time Mallard had reached Shildon, the England v Slovenia world cup game had finished 1-0 and England had qualified for the next stage of the world cup. Everybody seemed to converge on Shildon to celebrate the sights and sounds of what our nation can achieve and many lingered on enjoying a beautiful, hot, sunny day. Locations: Dalton (south of Thirsk), Danby Wiske (between Northallerton and Darlington), Heighington (between Darlington and Bishop Auckland), and Shildon, at the National Railway Museum’s sister site, ‘Locomotion’.

The BEST of GRESLEY: Mallard


Gresley’s Class A4 Pacific steam locomotive Mallard claimed a world speed record for steam traction of 126 mph in 1938. As the 50th anniversary of the record-breaking run approached in the late 1980’s the National Railway Museum rebuilt the locomotive to allow a brief return to the mainline. This footage celebrates an impressive machine and a magnificant restoration project by our NRM.

4468 Mallard 60163 Tornado Arrive @ Locomotion Shildon From NRM York


A4 Pacific No 4468 Mallard arrives at its new home Locomotion Shildon from the National Railway Museum at York. Mallard No 4468 designed by Sir Nigel Gresley (holds the World Speed Record for a steam engine 126mph) & No 47798 Prince William were hauled by A1 Peppercorn Class No 60163 Tornado. A crowd of over 1000 had gathered to watch the “Engine Move Of The Decade” made by Mallard, Tornado & Prince William to Locomotion. Once again Shildon was buzzing & the scene was reminiscent of the 150th Anniversary of The Stockton To Darlington Railway Gala of 1976 held in Shildon.

RailWorks – Bittern and Mallard A4 Steam Locomotives Gameplay (HD)


www.jameswoodcock.co.uk http I capture and edit the wonderful new add on from www.justtrains.net… Five of the worlds most famous A4 Pacific steam engines are presented here in all their glory, with six authentic liveries and accurate detail variations across the eleven drivable locomotives. These include single and twin chimney stacks, with and without headboards, streamlined side fairings, un-valanced models, corridor and non-corridor tenders. First run in 1935, the 4-6-2 A4 Pacific Class of streamlined locomotives were designed by Sir Nigel Gresley and represent the pinnacle of British steam trains. The record breaking Mallard is probably the best known steam train in the world and it is joined by the Bittern, Silver Link, Sir Nigel Gresley and Union of South Africa.
