YEAR INFORMATION
2008 Named after a famous racehorse of the mid-19th Century, the “Flying Dutchman” service was first operated by the Great Western Railway in 1862 and ran in that year from Paddington to Didcot at an average speed of 55 mph! The special limited edition train pack of 2000 pieces is representative of the “Flying Dutchman” at the turn of the 19th Century when the chosen class of locomotive scheduled to pull the train was one of William Dean’s superb 7ft 8in 4-2-2 Singles. Each specially presented limited edition train pack includes a numbered certificate.
