Friday photo - Silver Jubilee

5:19 PM

Today's image is of an A4 class locomotive called Silver Link built to pull a train called the Silver Jubilee built for the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER). It was made in the year of King George V's 'Silver Jubilee', and was painted silver throughout and it looks very futuristic.

It entered service on September 30, 1935, travelling between London King's Cross and Newcastle. More information about the A4 class and Silver Jubilee service is available here.
