Britannia Steam Train Blank Birthday Fathers Day Card by Railway Artist Malcolm Root
The Britannia class brought such an improvement inperformance to the former Great Eastern lines of BR running from LiverpoolStreet that the timetable had to be re-written to get the best from them. Lovedby footplate crews and after a troubled start proving their worth time and timeagain, the ‘Brits’ would be seen on the region until the end of express steamin the early 1960s.
Here we see 70036 ‘Boadicea’ and 70037 ‘Herewardthe Wake’ at Liverpool Street early in their respective careers, probablyaround 1955.
