LNER 4-6-2 A3 'FLYING SCOTSMAN' 4472 - 50 YEARS IN PRESERVATION CIRCA MARCH 1963 ST97604
£19.95

Rail Legends, is a superbly detailed collection of static die-cast locomotives marking the golden age of British steam. Each model comes with a rail track effect plinth and clear plastic presentation case from which the locomotive can be detached.

After almost forty years in service for the GNR, LNER and British Railways, 'Flying Scotsman' retired from main-line service in 1963. By 1964 all fifty-eight A3 Class locomotives had been retired from service with BR, 'Flying Scotsman' No.60103 being the only one to have been saved for preservation by Alan Pegler, a businessman from Nottinghamshire. Pegler had seen 'Flying Scotsman' at the British Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1924, this left a lasting memory as just under forty years later he saved 'Flying Scotsman' from the fate of the scrapyard when he purchased it from British Railways for the sum of £3,000.

As part of the deal with BR, Pegler agreed to restore 'Flying Scotsman' to its LNER livery of Apple Green carrying its LNER-era numbering of 4472. On the 26th March 1963 'Flying Scotsman' emerged from the Doncaster Works in its newly painted LNER livery with a single chimney with the smoke deflectors removed and paired with a corridor type tender taken from the withdrawn A4 Class No.60034 'Lord Faringdon'.
