The Flying Scotsman is a special engine: it was the first engine in the UK to (officially) travel at 100 miles per hour. It did this in 1934, more recently than I was expecting.
It was polished up to the nines in dark green British Railways livery. Perhaps I expected the lighter green of the LNER livery made famous by the Hornby model. Neverthreless, it looked splendid in British Racing Green.
