The 'Flying Scotsman' is, without a doubt, the most famous and best loved steam locomotive in the world. She is also the most travelled locomotive in the history of steam, having notched up over 2 and half million miles in her working life. This gorgeous 160-ton A3 Pacific class engine started life in Doncaster in 1923. Designed by Sir Nigel Gresley, she cost just £7,944. In 1968, British Rail sold her for the princely sum of £3,000. In 1996, she changed hands again for over £1 million! This video tells the story of the 'Flying Scotsman' and features rare footage of her in her heyday on the main line and in private ownership.
Both tours of America and her celebrated Australian tour are all covered, while exclusive behind-the-scenes material also looks at all the 'backroom boys and girls' who have contributed to her preservation. The video then takes you on the ride of a lifetime in the cab of the 'Flying Scotsman' as she tows the 'Orient Express' at 80 mph! There are also exclusive interviews with her previous owners, including Alan Pegler, Sir William McAlpine and Dr. Tony Marchington, and a fascinating insight into the locomotive provided by chief engineer Roland Kennington.
