Flying ScotsmanLarge Print - 2009
Think of the Golden Age of Steam and one locomotive leaps to mind above all others: the Flying Scotsman, Nigel Gresley's elegant masterpiece which broke the world speed record in 1934 and has enthralled millions with her beauty and power. Rescued in the early sixties for preservation, she has since been across the United States, to Alice Springs in Australia, and even hauled the Orient Express. The author has discovered extraordinary stories about her-- like the time she nearly came to an explosive and tragic end on the Leicester line thanks to fish in her tender.
