Great Central Railwayana Auction Sale 258, Auction Lot 97
Lot 97 A worksplate, LMS BUILT 1940, CREWE. The only locos recorded as being built by the LMS at Crewe in 1940 were streamlined Princess Coronation Class 8P 4-6-2s Nos 6240-4 which became BR 46240-4 and were named City of Coventry, City of Edinburgh, City of Glasgow, City of Lancaster and City of Leeds, the latter renamed King George VI in 1941.
