Flying Scotsman

Flying Scotsman - possibly the world’s most famous railway locomotive

After more than a decade off the tracks, this much-loved engine has been returned to its former glory after a £4.2m restoration project for York's National Railway Museum (NRM). Flying Scotsman was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley, and built by the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) for £7,944 at Doncaster Works back in 1923. Our Corgi Rail Legends Flying Scotsman models allow you to commemorate this historic return to steam.

As the first steam locomotive to achieve an official 100mph run back in 1934, this high speed steam locomotive is instantly recognisable and has become an icon of British railway engineering.

All of our Corgi Rail Legends models have been carefully crafted to ensure they are lifelike model engines that pay homage to truly great locomotives.

Having performed test runs throughout the UK, the Flying Scotsman made its inaugural passenger journey on Thursday 25th February 2016, travelling from London King's Cross to York where it will take pride of place at the National Railway Museum for a series of events.

You can see a live BBC News feed of today's inaugural journey here.

In addition to our Corgi Flying Scotsman model locomotives, you can also browse the Flying Scotsman range from our sister brand Hornby below.
