No. 4472 Flying Scotsman – 1928

The A1s were designed by H. N. Gresley for the Great Northern Railway with the third, No. 1472, appearing after the grouping in 1923. In February 1924 its number was altered to No. 4472 and it was named Flying Scotsman. It represented the LNER at the British Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1924 and 1925.

When class was modified with long travel valves it became possible to run the 393 mile Flying Scotsman service without stopping. To enable the footplate crew to be changed en route a corridor tender was devised. The illustration shows No. 4472 Flying Scotsman as it hauled the first non-stop service from London to Edinburgh on 1st May 1928.

Built: Doncaster, February 1923
