Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. London Midland and Scottish Railway Princess Royal Class No. 6201 Princess Elizabeth is a preserved British steam locomotive. 6201 was built in 1933 at Crewe Works, the second of its class. She was named after the 7-year-old elder daughter of Albert, Duke of York, Princess Elizabeth. Despite the class officially being named after 6200 Princess Royal, the class received the nickname "Lizzies" after 6201. After nationalisation in 1948, British Railways renumbered her 46201. 46201 was withdrawn in 1962. 46201 was bought by the then Princess Elizabeth Locomotive Society straight from BR service when withdrawn in 1962. Initially kept at the Dowty Railway Preservation Society's premises at Ashchurch, Glos, and then subsequently at the Bulmers Railway Centre in Hereford. When the Bulmers Centre closed in the 1990s the loco moved to the East Lancashire Railway.show more
