**History Of The Flying Scotsman**

The engines final journey was during the big freeze. The rail link kept moving between the two capitals when all other modes of transport were struggling to say the least.
It was built at the Doncaster railway works to a design by Sir Nigel Gresley in 1923 at a cost of £7944. The locomotive was initially built by the Great Northern Railway. It was used by the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER), and subsequent companies, and was named after the 10am London to Edinburgh Flying Scotsman service. The original name for the route had been the Special Scotch Express. The LNER used the locomotive for promotional work as it was thought of as the company's flagship. Its first promotional duty was at at the British Empire Exhibition of 1924 and 1925.

The Flying Scotsman made the inaugural trip from London to Edinburgh non stop on 1st May 1928. It had a new eight wheeled tender carrying 9 tons of coal and with a water trough system used for water replenishment it could travel non stop between the two cities in 8 hours. It was the first train to travel at 100mph, which it accomplished in 1934, and held the record for the fastest railed vehicle. It was one of five Pacific Class A1 trains covering the route. They were later to become A3 engines with modified boilers and chimneys. The Flying Scotsman was modified to A3 standard by 4th January 1947.
Before the Second World War, the Flying Scotsman was more like an elegant liner on rails with fine dining and a hair dressers as two of its features. It was seen as an elegant way to travel between the two capitals. Even when it was running with 20 carriages demand outstripped seat numbers.
Under British Railways, from 1950, it ran on the Nottingham Victoria to London Marylebone route until it the line closed.
When Flying Scotsman came out of service it was bought by Alan Pegler a railway preservationist. He had it restored to near LNER condition at the Darlington works, the place where it had been built. It was used for a number of steam specials including a London to Edinburgh non stop run in 1968, the year steam was officially taken off the tracks. Financial support was withdrawn in 1972 during a tour of the USA and Pegler was in financial trouble putting the engine's future in doubt. It was in San Francisco and could easily have been scrapped.
In 1973 William McAlpine bought Flying Scotsman from the finance company in San Francisco and it was returned to Britain. It was restored once again, this time in the Derby works. It was then used for tours including an extensive one in Australia to mark the country's bicentenary. While in Australia it steamed the transcontinental run from Sydney to Perth.
In 1996 the engine was once again in the UK and up for sale. It was bought by Dr. Tony Marchington who made an extensive restoration in order that the locomotive could be run on main line tracks. It had regular use until Marchington's company was forced to sell Flying Scotsman.
In 2004 it was finally bought by the National Railway Museum, York. It’s now part of the national collection. I'm delighted to find that this museum at both York and Shildon has free entry at the time of writing so it's well worth popping along while there's still no charge
