CPR 374, the first Canadian engine to travel coast to coast, beside a Royal Hudson. King George VI allowed the CPR to use the term after Royal Hudson after number 2850 transported the royal train across Canada with no need of replacement.

The locomotive I used for the Thread is Mallard, in the Livery it wore when it broke a World Record.

You discarded an element it's beloved for? also the name "mallard" blue is fairly appropriate for such nickname.

It's got amazing lines. I read Gresley was inspired by a Bugatti railcar and with that in mind you can see the automotive heritage in the design. Easily the most elegant class of streamlined locomotives.

They look good. They look really good - but they don't have the airfoil shaped fairing over the wheels which I think is an important element of the design.
