Tour Scotland Video Train Ride On The Morayshire Steam Locomotive Bo'ness



Tour Scotland video of a train ride on the Morayshire steam locomotive in Bo'ness, West Lothian, Scotland. Designed by Gresley and built at the LNER Darlington Works in 1928, Morayshire is the only surviving member of 76 Shires. Sir Herbert Nigel Gresley, born 19 June 1876, died 5 April 1941, was one of Britain's most famous steam locomotive engineers, who rose to become Chief Mechanical Engineer of the London and North Eastern Railway. He was the designer of some of the most famous steam locomotives in Britain, including the LNER Class A1 and LNER Class A4 4-6-2 Pacific engines. An A1 pacific, Flying Scotsman, was the first steam locomotive officially recorded over 100 mph in passenger service, and an A4, number 4468 Mallard, still holds the record for being the fastest steam locomotive in the world at 126 mph.
