EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the iconic Flying Scotsman steam locomotive as it departs Liverpool for Derby, embarking on a much-needed overhaul. The journey was nothing short of spectacular, with thousands of people eagerly watching from various stations along the route. Prior to its arrival in Liverpool, this magnificent locomotive had traveled all the way from San Francisco, USA aboard the MV California Star. Designed by Sir Herbert Nigel Gresley, The Flying Scotsman is renowned for its role as an express passenger train service connecting Edinburgh and London via the East Coast Main Line. With origins dating back to 1862, this legendary service officially adopted its name in 1924. A historic moment occurred on May 1st, 1928 when the A1 class locomotive 4472 Flying Scotsman made history by hauling the inaugural non-stop train from London Kings Cross to Edinburgh. Covering an impressive distance of 392 miles (631 km) without stopping, it set a record at that time for a scheduled service. The picture itself was taken on February 19th, 1973 and beautifully encapsulates not only the grandeur of this steam-powered marvel but also evokes a sense of nostalgia associated with railway travel in the mid-20th century. As we observe misty tracks disappearing into the horizon and catch glimpses of both driver and passengers waving goodbye or hello through windows framed by billowing steam clouds – we are transported back to an era where trains represented more than just transportation; they symbolized adventure and romance.
