A sister engine of Doncaster’s record-breaking steam locomotive, Mallard, has gone on display at the National Railway Museum.

Dominion of Canada, one of 35 A4 Pacifics built at the Plant in the 1930s, has been brought over from Montreal and has undergone a transformation in the museum’s workshops and emerged in her original garter blue livery.

Next month the Mallard and five other sister engines will be reunited for the first time since they were built, in a special exhibition at York.

The Dwight D Eisenhower is due to arrive soon from America.
