Production Details: The year of the 40th anniversary of the world famous 'Flying Scotsman' receiving a second tender which at the time allowed the 'Scotsman' to carry a total water load of 11,000 gallons giving it an operating distance of 200 - 250 miles before its tenders needed replenishing. The addition of this extra tender gave the 'Flying Scotsman' a unique presence and provided a dynamic sight when seen heading up a steam special.
To coincide with the 40th anniversary a special Limited Edition production run of the Hornby Live Steam 'Flying Scotsman' model with a double tender has been included in the year's range. In total, 1,000 models were produced with each model complete with certificate, water and oil fillers as well as instructions. This model is a unique opportunity to recreate and capture those early days of steam specials when the 'Flying Scotsman' was at that time the only steam locomotive allowed to operate on the main line.
The individual Live Steam models are supplied complete with operating tools including filling syringes, steam oil and gloves. Each locomotive is fitted with an NEM type coupling and is suitable for use with all Hornby rolling stock
The locomotives are all new and in pristine original and will be a great addition to any Hornby live Steam collection.
