The Duchess at Bury South
The Duchess at Bury South
Coronation class Pacific (4-6-2) locomotive No. 6233, Duchess of Sutherland, was the “star attraction” at the East Lancashire Railway’s 2018 Steam Gala. Here, the preserved locomotive is seen passing the Bury South signal box after leaving Bolton Street Station on the way to Heywood.

Duchess of Sutherland was built in 1938 for the London Midland & Scottish railway company and was painted in LMS standard crimson lake livery. In 1948, British Railways renumbered the locomotive to 46233 and repainted it in their Brunswick green livery. Withdrawn by British Railways in 1964, the locomotive was originally sold to Butlin’s holiday camp in Scotland. In 1996, the locomotive was acquired by The Princess Royal Class Locomotive Trust with the intention of restoration to mainline condition. In 2001, she was restored to operating condition and since then has been repainted in the LMS crimson livery and now carries its original LMS number.
