Ex-LMS Coronation class Pacific 46223 "Princess Alice" hauls train W106 southbound near Clifton & Lowther approaching Shap, south of Penrith.  The first coach in the train is of LNER origin and is in BR carmine & cream livery.
The light exhaust smoke demonstrates that these were powerful locomotives which were capable of hauling significant loads up Shap bank without having to be thrashed. This locomotive entered service in 1937 in streamlined form.

 

     
 

LMS 6233 "Duchess of Sutherland" features in a few photographs on this page.  The locomotive was delivered from Crewe Works in July 1938, having cost approximately 13,800.  The single chimney was replaced by a double one in March 1941.  Smoke deflectors were fitted in September 1945.
 
As BR 46233 "Duchess of Sutherland" the locomotive was withdrawn from service at Edge Hill Motive Power Depot in February 1964.  She was then displayed for many years at the Butlin's holiday camp in Ayr before being refurbished and returned to use on the main line.
