Transport - Rail - Steam Locomotives - The Mallard

The 'Mallard', the fastest steam locomotive in the world, on a journey before the London and North Eastern locomotive was retired by British Rail in 1963. The legendary steam train has been a major attraction for the past decade at the National Railway Museum in York. Now it is planned to bring the 'Mallard' out of retirement and spend £50,000 restoring it in time for the 50th anniversary of its record-breaking run on July 3, 1988. It is 47 years since the 'Mallard' set a world record for steam of 126mph between Grantham and Peterborough.
