The City of Truro locomotive reached 102.3mph on 9 May 1904. Controversy has long surrounded the locomotive's claim.

The City of Truro's speed record was not officially recorded at the time, which means it does not stand.

Records list The Flying Scotsman as the first train to travel at 100mph more than 30 years later.
