75th Anniversary of The World Steam Record - The Flying Scotsman

Built by the London North Eastern Railway, number 4472 Flying Scotsman was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley and built at Doncaster works in 1923 at a cost of £7,944. In 1924 Flying Scotsman was handpicked by directors of LNER to act as a rolling advertisement for the Flying Scotsman service.

In 2004 the National Railway Museum saved the iconic locomotive from being sold abroad. The successful bid included £415,000 raised by the public and £365,000 donated by Sir Richard Branson, Chairman of the Virgin Group, in addition to the £1.8m grant from the National Heritage Memorial Fund.
