  1. Boston Tommy - December 28, 2017

    “Flying Scotsman” in newspaper reports is not about the locomotive, but one carriage in the SVR’s LNER teak set that may be advertised as “the Flying Scotsman train”, remembering that the loco was named after the London to Edinburgh service.

    I suspect that the loco is tucked up nice and warm in Yorkshire.
