The Great Steamboat Race

Top Gear Steam Train Race Part 1/4


Top Gears biggest and best race of the lot from London Kings Cross to Edinburgh Waverly Scotland. Featureing A Jaguar XK120, Vincent Black Shadow, And LNER A1 60163 Tornado. The original plan was to use 4472 Flying Scotsman instead of tornado but because of her overhaul 60163 got the job instead. The Trip was filmed on the 25th April 2009. Part 1 of 4 shows the trio picking pieces of paper for who gets what. Imagine what whould have happened if clarkson was on the bike may on the train and hammond in the jag. After picking out the hat they were shown what they were using and at 7:23am the race Began.
