The Flying Scotsman

The Flying Scotsman. 

The two-time world record-breaking Flying Scotsman has finally been created out of LEGO! This particular LEGO model was based on the LNER Class A3 4472 Flying Scotsman model that ran from 1924 to 1948, that was later restored in 1968, 1996 and 2016. The Flying Scotsman was a British passenger locomotive that ran first-ever stop journey from King's Cross to Edinburgh Waverley, a distance of nearly 400 miles in just 8 hours! On November 30th, 1934, the Flying Scotsman became the first ever locomotive to reach 100 miles an hour and thus setting the world record and getting her name in the history books. However, she wasn't done there! She would then go on to set another world record as the longest non-stop journey by a steam locomotive.

The Lego Model.

The base build is a Mini-figure scaled push locomotive that falls in line with the LEGO standard size of trains (6 studs wide), so she can fit in perfectly in your LEGO train layout. The build consists of one steam engine, one tender, and one Mini-Figure. The build is Power functions/ Powered Up compatible with modular components so converting her from push to RC is simple and easy! The set would contain stickers/prints as seen in the images.
