    Steam Classics Flying Scotsman
    'Flying Scotsman' is known as the most famous steam locomotive in the world. There are few people have not heard of this magnificent machine, but far fewer know the complicated story of how 'Flying Scotsman' became a National Treasure. Illustrated by evocative footage of the engine working on the British railway network in various guises, this programme traces the story from the time when the locomotive returned from Australia after achieving its most recent record - the world's longest non-stop run behind steam - up to its acquisition by the nation and the National Railway Museum at York. In this programme we see 'Flying Scotsman' with single and double-chimney fittings, 'German' smoke deflectors and LNER Apple Greene and British Railways' Brunswick Green liveries, working from Carnforth in the North to Salisbury in the South, as well as on the 'Ride the Legend' excursions to Scarborough.

    Little Book Of Steam Classics (128 Pages)
    Presented in chronological order the last locomotive class featured in this volume of 60 classic engines is the British Railways standard 2-10-0 9F freight class which included Evening Star, the last steam locomotive built by British Railways. Withdrawn in 1965, Evening Star had a very short working life in common with most of the other standard classes included in the 15,000 engines scrapped by British Railways in the decade up to 1968. As a tribute to the success of that preservation industry, representatives of virtually all the 60 engines included in this book, can still be seen, whether working on heritage railways, as static exhibits in museums or even running on mainline specials. A chronological record the engines featured in this book are important for either technological innovation or else simple workmanlike efficiency such as the ubiquitous 0-6-0 freight engines built in their thousands and confirming their durability by remaining in service for 50, 60 or even, in some cases, 70 years.
