  • Information


How much pride, trouble and misery could a steam locomotive create?

No other locomotive could have beaten the 'Flying Scotsman'.

Its story is wrapped up in British pride, setting speed and distance records, having many costly problems, nearly being scrapped, being rescued four times, foreign trips with one that went badly wrong, and men ruined. Actually, the 'Flying Scotsman' isn't just a locomotive.

It's also the name of a fast train service that was started in 1927.

The loco-motive was named after it, because it was the first one to pull it.
