The London & North Western Railway American Special is hauled by a 4-4-0 locomotive No 513 "Precursor"'. '3 new & luxuriously appointed corridor saloon trains as above have recently been built by the LNWR for the special service between Euston and the Riverside Station, Liverpool, in connection with the incoming and outgoing American Liners. Each train accommodates 100 pasengers; the 1st clas compartments are at one end and the 2nd & 3rd at the other, with the Dining Cars at the other so that meals are served to all clases simultaneously'.
