This all-Pullman train has brought Gresley A1 pacific 4475 Flying Fox to an unlikely locaion on April 27th 1938 as a Newmarket racegoers special rounds the curve eastwards from Coldham Junction north of Cambridge. 4475 was upgraded to A3 status in 1947 and was subsequently numbered 60106 under the BR regime. I was privileged to be a passenger behind Flying Fox in May 1964 when it hauled the Doncaster out and back legs of a railtour to York and Darlington.
