Date:August 1933

Description:During the 1930s, the London Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS) prided itself on its swift service between London and Scotland.

A spirit of intense competition with their east coast counterparts, the LNER, made regular headlines at this time.

So the LMS's distinctive red express trains were a frequent, if fleeting sight in the Potteries and North Staffordshire.

This service of summer 1933 is powered by an LMS 4-6-0 'Royal Scot' class locomotive.

It is number 46138, named The London Irish Rifleman.
