LMSR Stanier 'Coronation' class pacific no. 6242 City of Glasgow works hard passing Clifton on the climb to Shap summit. This shot was taken between March 1947 when the streamlined casing was removed and May 1948 when the BR no. 46242 was applied. Tragedy struck City of Glasgow when she was heavily damaged in the Harrow & Wealdstone disaster on October 8th, 1952. Notwithstanding the extensive damage, 46242 was returned to traffic about a year thereafter and would continue to operate until withdrawal at Polmadie mpd in October 1963.
