No. 46243 ‘City of Lancaster’ was originally numbered 6243 under LMS. The locomotive was named ‘City of Lancaster’ in April 1940 and was streamlined at Crewe Works on 29th May of the same year. A tender was fitted on the same date. The name plates were chromium-plated but over time, the chrome wore away, so it was not renewed. Under BR nationalisation, it was renumbered as 46243 in April 1948. May 1949 saw the locomotive being de-streamlined and it became the only locomotive to carry its BR number while streamlined. ‘City of Lancaster’ was withdrawn from service in September 1964 and cut up by Central Wagon Co in Ince, Wigan, in August 1965.
