A brief history: BR 60103 FLYING SCOTSMAN (LNER 4472 & 103) was originally built in 1923 for the London and North East railway Company (LNER) in Doncaster Works (LNER Doncaster 'Plant' No. 1564) to the design of the chief mechanical engineer H. N. Gresley (later knighted). BR 60103 FLYING SCOTSMAN operated on the East Coast Mainline hauling the London Kings Cross - York - Newcastle - Edinburgh express passenger trains, including the non-stop FLYING SCOTSMAN passenger train from London to Edinburgh. In 1934 BR 60103 FLYING SCOTSMAN became the first steam locomotive to travel at an authenticated speed of 100 mph. BR 60103 FLYING SCOTSMAN was withdrawn from British Railways (BR) regular service in 1963 after travelling 2.07 million miles. World tours of BR 60103 FLYING SCOTSMAN have included Canada, USA and Australia where another world record for a steam locomotive was set by travelling 422 miles without stopping. Since 1963 BR 60103 FLYING SCOTSMAN has had several owners and several restorations and overhauls. Originally classified as an LNER A1 pacific, it was rebuilt in 1947 to emerge yet again from Doncaster Works (the famous 'Plant') as an LNER A3 Pacific. BR 60103 FLYING SCOTSMAN is now part of the National Collection of preserved steam locomotives. After an extensive overhaul ending in 2015, 60103 FLYING SCOTSMAN is now beginning a series of runs and visits to heritage railways e.g. NYMR and York NRM and Shildon NRM in 2016.
