Cabinet 5: UK and US Rail
Alan Anderson, The Flying Scotsman. Leicester: Brockhampton Press Ltd., 1949.
Every boy of a certain age knows of the apple-green Flying Scotsman (No. 4472), arguably Great Britains most famous train. Built in 1923, she was familiar to those who travelled on the 10.00 am from London to Edinburgh. Her official British Rail service ended in 1963, and by 2004, she was stored at the National Railway Museum at York. The ABC of British Railways Locomotives contains details on particular classes of locomotives and their designated numbers (ideal for train-spotters). Webbers slips are still in place, indicating use of this small volume.
British publisher Ian Allan recognised that steam locomotives fascinated boys of all ages. Locollection is but one of his many publications.
