The principal LMS express passenger service, named the Royal Scot, was timed to run between Euston and Glasgow in just 6.5 hours. The line was demanding with long, arduous inclines so, elsewhere along the route, every opportunity had to be taken for running at high speed. The Princess Coronation Class locomotives were designed to meet this challenge and, as depicted here, they achieved this goal regularly and with considerable success.
