3440 Lea Marston 3 May 1992

The first locomotive to reach 100 mph - City Class 4-4-0 3440 City of Truro is pictured here passing Lea Marston at a slightly slower speed with a Derby to Paddington special on 3 May 1992, on what was thought at the time to be its last main line outing. However, just as the locomotive emerged from retirement in 1957 to work passenger trains, so it did in the 21st Century.
