Nigel Gresley's iconic streamlined A4-class locomotive was built for speed on the East Coast Main Line, and Mallard made history in July 1938 with a steam speed record that stands to this day. This updated second edition examines the competition between rival railway companies that led to ever-faster engines, traces the evolution of steam locomotives and draws on the reminiscences of the Mallard's footplate crew to tell the story of its record-breaking run.
