1978 One of the most famous locomotives of all time, Flying Scotsman is the sole survivor of a class of 78 locomotives originally introduced in 1922 to haul the fastest and heaviest trains on the LNER system. The locomotive can now be seen at Steamtown, Carnforth. The Hornby model has been improved for 1978 by the introduction of finer scale wheels and improved lining to splashers and body; standard features include Magnadhesion and fully fitted cab interior.
1979 Includes Magnadhesion.
1980 Includes crew figures and vacuum pipes.
2002 For almost 35 years 'Flying Scotsman' was used to pull the express passenger trains for the LNER and then later British Railways. In January 1963 BR locomotive 60103, formerly 4472, was withdrawn from service. However, 'Flying Scotsman' was purchased by Mr Alan Peglar and, after an extensive refit at the Doncaster Works, was returned to ‘the metals' to pull special private charter services. During the refit at which time the locomotive was repainted in the bright apple green of the LNER, the double chimney was replaced by a single chimney and the German style smoke deflectors were removed. This Hornby model is representative of the locomotive as it appeared throughout the 1970’s.
