About this title


How and why Flying Scotsman became the most famous steam locomotive in the world

Everyone knows the name Flying Scotsman but not everyone knows the history of this world-famous locomotive. Here Baldwin takes the reader on a railway journey through time, beginning with the Great Northern Railway years, through LNER, BR, Alan Pegler, and beyond, right to the National Railway Museum's acquisition of it in 2004 and the restoration process since then. Complete with stunning black-and-white and color illustrations, and with the return of this great locomotive back to mainline tour usage imminent, this is the perfect package to allow Flying Scotsman enthusiasts old and new to get a real taste of the rich history of this favorite steam locomotive.

About the Author:

James S. Baldwin is a historian and industrial archaeologist who is considered to be the expert on all things Flying Scotsman.
