THE WEST RIDING LTD
This train was introduced in 1937 to primarily accommodate business people travelling between London and the West Riding of Yorkshire (Wakefield, Leeds & Bradford). An Observation Car was not included on this train. Other than that it was identical with the Coronation.
THE SILVER JUBILEE
The first streamlined train of the LNER. Introduced to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of King George V in 1935. It ran between London (Kings Cross) and Newcastle.
The second streamlined LNER train. Introduced in 1937 to commemorate the Coronation of King George VI. It ran between London (Kings Cross) and Edinburgh. The train included an Observation Car at the rear of the train.
NB - I have not illustrated the complete West Riding Ltd as the coaches were identical to the Coronation. The main difference was that the name was on the side of each coach in stainless steel letters.
