Flying Mallard and a Tornado


A load of clips from Mallard and Tornado’s journey from the National Railway Museum in York to it’s sister museum, Locomotion, in Shildon, County Durham. The entire route was packed with people jostling for position and waving at the most famous locomotive in the world: the 72-year old world speed record holder, “Mallard”. By the time Mallard had reached Shildon, the England v Slovenia world cup game had finished 1-0 and England had qualified for the next stage of the world cup. Everybody seemed to converge on Shildon to celebrate the sights and sounds of what our nation can achieve and many lingered on enjoying a beautiful, hot, sunny day. Locations: Dalton (south of Thirsk), Danby Wiske (between Northallerton and Darlington), Heighington (between Darlington and Bishop Auckland), and Shildon, at the National Railway Museum’s sister site, ‘Locomotion’.

Hornby NRM Flying Scotsman LNER 4472 Steam Locomotive Review


This is a review of the NRM (National Railway Museum) issued Hornby R2441 Premium model of the Class A3 LNER 4472 Flying Scotsman Steam Locomotive that was released in 2004. The model is very impressive as you get a lot of detail on the model plus some extra detailling parts to make the model even more impressive. This OO gauge model is loco-driven as opposed to the older Hornby Models that were tender driven and those were quite underpowered compared to the loco-driven steam engines. The model is DCC ready so those that use a DCC system on their layout can plug a 8 pin decoder into the model and away you go. I give this model of the railway landmark a perfect flawless 10/10. Overall Rating: 10/10

Driving The Flying Scotsman


twitter.com On 2nd November 1992 I spent 2hours on the footplate of “The Flying Scotsman” 4472 at Tysley, birmingham. It was a driving experience which cost £95, money well spent. There were three of us on the footplate with a trained driver taking it in turns to drive. The driver was a staunch GWR man and said that the “Scotsman” should be cut up for razor blades. We threatened to throw him off. It was an amazing experience and I had a stupid grin on my face for at least a week. www.diaryofamusician.com
