Stanier Coronation Class 4-6-2 No 46251 City of Nottingham at Edinburgh Princess Street station with the RCTS The Duchess Commemorative rail tour returning to Crewe 5th October 1963. This was seen has a last chance to travel behind one of Stanier 'Duchess' class and originally No 46256 was chosen for this tour but sadly failed a week before. No 46251 was brought out of storage and cleaned especially for the tour and gave a good account of herself over Shap and Beattock. Suits, blazers and camera equipment the order of the day what great days they must have been.
