This situation could exist only in the artist’s imagination, although every railway enthusiast wishes it had been otherwise. The Princess Cornation Class operated initially over the LMS West Coast Route between London (Euston) and Glasgow while the A4s worked over the East Coast Main Line between London (King’s Cross) and the northern cities of Leeds, Nescastle, Edinburgh and sometimes Aberdeen. At no time did the ‘rivals’ actually run on adjacent tracks but the enthusiast’s dream remains.
