I didn’t know about that one – lucky it wasn’t catastrophic. I admit to a fondness for the LMS streamliners, and, contrary soul that I am, prefer them to the much more successful LNER ones. This is partly because I was given a ‘Coronation Scot’ for my train set in my childhood (including a carriage by my grandmother, which I think was the last Christmas present from her before she died), and partly because to me they look so wonderfully 1930s-futuristic. I’m led to understand that their rather high side area led to them being a inefficient when there was a strong crosswind, and the streamliner bodies were removed after a while.
