Description
Named for the London to Edinburgh express service that it pulled for four decades, Nigel Gresley's LNER Class A1 (later A3) locomotive Flying Scotsman was destined to become one of the world's most famous and long-lived steam engines. It was the first engine ever to officially reach 100 mph, made the longest nonstop run ever pulled by a steam engine (422 miles, in 1989), and by the late 1960s was the only steam engine still in service on British Rail. Flying Scotsman has bankrupted numerous businessmen, and been threatened with the scrap yard several times, but the love of Britons for this grand old steam engine has saved it again and again, and each time it emerges from the workshop gleaming and eager to haul passengers in the classic style. This handsome boxed set is a thrilling, immersive celebration of this exceptional locomotive, with no less than ten film and video programs about Flying Scotsman on four DVDs, from the 1929 film of the same name costarring Ray Milland and Pauline Johnson through restorations in the 1960s, 80s, and 90s; major tours of North America and Australia; special service runs; and thundering speed runs. The set also includes a packet of paper memorabilia, including facsimiles of tickets, dining car menus, advertising, engineering drawings, luggage stickers, engineer's logs, and promotions like the "Save Our Scotsman" campaign of the early 1960s.
