Story

It was built in 1938 for the London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS). It is a Pacific 4-6-2 locomotive built as part of the Coronation LMS class for its express passenger services.

Withdrawn by British Railways in 1964, the locomotive was initially sold to Bultins in Scotland. In 1996 the locomotive was acquired by the Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust with the hope of being refitted on the main line. In 2001, 46233 was restored to working order and since then regularly aired on the national network.
