Tour Scotland Video Flying Scotsman
Tour Scotland video of the Flying Scotsman steam train in Scotland. LNER Class A3 4472 Flying Scotsman is a Pacific steam locomotive built in 1923 for the London and North Eastern Railway at Doncaster Works in England to a design of Nigel Gresley. It was employed on long distance express East Coast Main Line trains by the LNER and its successors, British Railways Eastern and North Eastern Regions, notably on the London to Edinburgh Flying Scotsman train service after which it was named. In January 2006, Flying Scotsman entered the National Railway Museum's workshops for a major overhaul. The overhaul was completed in January 2016 and testing began on the East Lancashire Railway on 8 January 2016. An inaugural journey from London King's Cross to York in traditional green livery ran on 25 February 2016.
