4468 - Mallard details on steamloco.info


The Mallard holds the speed record for steamlocomotives at 124.5 MPH. She was restored to mainline condition for the 50th Anniversary of her record breaking run in 1988, but the boiler certificate has since expired. Due to the expense of keeping her in running condition and the popularity of her as an exhibit at York, she will be kept in a static condition for the foreseeable future.
