Dunfermline visitor

Post by Deepol » Sat Jun 25, 2011 5:27 pm

In May 1968 Flying Scotsman worked a special composed of MetCam Pullmans to Dunfermline where she was serviced. I'm sure the train went on further with a 37 which took it back to Waverley for 4472 to work back South.

This was her second visit to Edinburgh in that month as on 1st May she had re-enacted her non-stop run from Kings Cross 40 years earlier.

Essential to the non-stop run was the corridor tender enabling crews to be changed over on the move. Here Flying Scotsman shows off this ingenious piece of equipment.
