Discover beautiful images and interesting stories in Andrew McLean's stylish, illustrated The Flying Scotsman: Speed, Style, Service hardback exhibition book on 'the world's most famous train', published in collaboration with the National Railway Museum in York. This book follows the story of the Flying Scotsman in a way that no other history has, expertly weaving together the tale of the locomotive with a wider historical narrative. Furthermore, it delves into the less-known stories of the train - such as its sabotage by striking miners in 1926 - and features superb examples of poster art and other publicity materials commissioned by the LNER to promote the service, and documentary photography from the nineteenth century to the present.
Written by Andrew McLean, the current curator of the National Rail Museum, the story of the Flying Scotsman has never been told so well.
The Flying Scotsman: Speed, Style, Service measures 21 cm x 24.8 cm and has 176 pages.
