In the hardcover gift edition version of Flying Scotsman: The Extraordinary Story of the World's Most Famous Train, Andrew Roden tells the Scotsman’s remarkable story, from her construction and the glory days between the wars through the decline of steam and her rollercoaster fortunes in the subsequent years: nearly abandoned on a tour of the United States after the money ran out, crossing the Australian interior, then put up for sale yet again when the company that owned her went bankrupt in 2003. A massive public campaign saved her for the nation and the Flying Scotsman’s restoration began in 2005 at the National Railway Museum.

With the aid of numerous interviews with those involved with the Scotsman over the years, Roden brings her story memorably to life. Above all, he asks: why do grown men risk their life savings to own her? Why do thousands of people still line the trackside when she’s due to race past? And just what is the eternal appeal of the Flying Scotsman?

This gift edition is larger and has beautiful quality paper with glossy images, making it a wonderful gift for rail enthusiasts and fans of the Scotsman.

The 192-page gift edition Flying Scotsman: The Extraordinary Story of the World's Most Famous Train measures 18.7 cm x 2.1 cm x 25.4 cm
