Silver Jubilee, King George V, Crewe Works, King George, LNER
King George V's Silver Jubilee was an irresistible marketing opportunity for the railways. While the LNER launched the glamourous Silver Jubilee streamlined express, its arch-rival the LMS nipped in first and grabbed the Silver Jubilee name, albeit for a more mundane locomotive. Jubilee class leader, No. 5552, did receive a special high gloss black livery with chromium trim. Crewe Works craftsmen apply the finish in April, 1935. *** Local Caption *** Workers painting the chromium parts of the steam engine Silver Jubilee at the London Midland and Scottish works at Crewe in preparation for the Silver Jubilee of King George V.April 1935.
