99 Royal Crown reputedly carried by Canadian Pacific 4-6-4 Hudson Locomotive number 2850 when, along with a couple of other locos, it hauled the Royal Train from Quebec to Vancouver carrying HM King George VI and Queen Elizabeth on their first visit to the Dominion. Royal Crown reputedly carried by Canadian Pacific 4-6-4 Hudson Locomotive number 2850 when, along with a couple of other locos, it hauled the Royal Train from Quebec to Vancouver carrying HM King George VI and Queen Elizabeth on their first visit to the Dominion. It was after the visit that the King (who was an avid train enthusiast) approved the fitting of crowns to the running boards of the Hudsons and they became known as Royal Hudsons thereafter. The loco 2850 wore the crown when it was subsequently exhibited at the New York Worlds Fair. Two of these were made, one for each side of course, so, an incredibly rare and historic item measuring 13 x 13.5 and in totally ex loco condition. Accompanying is a framed & glazed, signed, limited edition print no. 3/350 of The Royal Train by Douglas A. Manning. It clearly shows how the crown was fitted on the forward running board. £2400
