When the 'Kings' were first built in 1927, the Paddington publicity department made the most of their visible power - the highest tractive effort in the country and the longest non-stop run in the country London to Plymouth. The Caledonian had been criticised for appropriating the Royal Arms of Scotland, much to annoyance of the North British Railway who no doubt would have done so had they thought of it first.
