The definitive book -

Flying Scotsman - The Peoples Engine

From drawing board to preservation, this is the complete story of arguably the most famous steam locomotive in the world. Built in Doncaster in 1923, Flying Scotsman quickly achieved record after record. In 1928, she became the first steam engine to travel non-stop between London and Edinburgh and in 1934, was the first steam locomotive to officially be recorded travelling quicker than 100mph. Flying Scotsman is also the only steam locomotive to have circumnavigated the globe having travelled to America in 1969 and Australia in 1988. Despite these achievements, the locomotives future has often hung in the balance and a number of last minute rescues were needed to save her from an uncertain fate. This book written by James S. Baldwin and beautifully illustrated with previously unseen photographs, tells the incredible story of Flying Scotsman, documenting the many highs and lows of her action-packed life.

Few locomotives are as widely known or excite so much interest as Flying Scotsman. Designed by Sir Nigel Gresley, the locomotive became a flagship for the LNER from 1923 and represented them at the British Empire Exhibition in 1924 and 1925. Thus began Flying Scotsman’s fame, which only continued as the locomotive broke records, becoming the first to officially exceed 100mph in 1934 and taking the longest journey of any steam locomotive in 1988–89. Passing through such hands as Alan Pegler and Pete Waterman after her retirement from British Railways, Flying Scotsman is now in public hands for restoration.

Here James S. Baldwin uses his expert knowledge and unrivalled collection of images to highlight the illustrious career of this world-famous locomotive.

Yet another GREAT Book about

Flying Scotsman

is now available!


This magnificent book full of pictures detailing the history of this icon of steam is still available only at

W H Smiths.

The Brighton Atlantic locomotives were some of the most handsome machines ever constructed at Brighton Works. They were signed by the D. Earl Marsh, Locomotive Superintendent of the London Brighton and South Coast Railway, and produced as two classes, the H1, introduced in 1905-1906, and the H2, introduced in 1911 1912. The Brighton Atlantic type has had a following among enthusiasts and model engineers for over a century, with many fine examples of models of these machines being constructed in all scales, both as live steam and electric powered. Great interest is still there today, with many models of these fine locomotives on show at model engineering exhibitions and on smaller scale Brighton or Southern layouts. The Bluebell Railway in East Sussex is currently constructing a full-size replica of the last H2 Atlantic (Beachy Head) in a workshop at Sheffield Park, using some parts from the original locomotive and a rescued Great Northern Atlantic boiler. The project to construct a replica machine has aroused a great deal of public interest in this design of locomotive. At this time there are no books available on the market for anyone who would like to construct a model on, or take an interest in, the replica project on the Bluebell Railway.

The Great Northern Atlantics, were the first locomotives constructed in Britain to the 4-4-2 wheel arrangement. The Atlantics were designed by H.G. Ivatt, locomotive Superintendent of The Great Northern Railway. Introduced from 1898, with the construction at Doncaster Works of small boilered Atlantic number 990 Henry Oakley, which is now preserved in the National Collection at York, this type of locomotive became one of the most successful types in use on top link express work in the late Victorian and Edwardian era. The small boilered type was followed in 1902, by the large boilered type, examples of which remained in traffic until the early 1950s. The two types of Great Northern Atlantic locomotives were retained in top link service on the L N E R well into the 1920s, as there were not enough of the new Gresley A1 Pacific's to take over top link diagrams. As a result of the success of the Ivatt designed large boilered Atlantic, D. Earl-Marsh, who was in charge of the drawing office at Doncaster, designed his own version of the Ivatt machine, when he moved to Brighton Works as Locomotive Superintendent of the L B S C R. The Great Northern Atlantics, like the Brighton machines had a large following which has continued to this day, with model engineers and small scale modellers continuing to construct fine live steam and electric drive models of these handsome locomotives.
