Finally, here she is, my recreation of the Flying Scotsman steam locomotive, the second of a series of 3 LNER pacific engines I plan to do. I would also like to do a set of LNER teak passenger cars.



This project features the original A3 engine as well as the later design in the BR livery and with the secondary tender and, as usual, full interiors, all in 3 to 1 scale. Hope you like it!


History

Built in 1923 and design by Nigel Gresley for LNER, the class A3 was an express pacific type steam engine that ran, most notoriously, the Flying Scotsman service from London to Edinburgh, after which she was named. Originally built as a modified A1 (not the same as the Tornado class, later renamed to A10) her most notorious feature was her tender, with it’s corridor that allowed for the driving crew to be changed without the engine having to stop. Due to this and the fact she can fill with water on the run via a water through and a scope allowed her to made the 631km journey non-stopping, setting a world record. She also had the world record for being the first engine to officially reach the speed of 160km/h. Later on she was improved, being fitted with a double chimney and to increase performance and German styled smoke deflectors. In 1962 British railways announced the end of the A3 service, having one engine being bough, sparing it from getting scraped. This one engine would travel the world, running in the US and Canada from 1969 to 1973 and Australia in 1988/89, changing owners several times until she was finally bough by the Nation Railway Museum in 2004. From 2006 to 2016 she went on an extensive restoration work. According to a poll done in 2015, the Flying Scotsman is the most famous steam locomotive in the world.
