The Gresley-designed Flying Scotsman has become an icon of British steam, hauling the first non-stop Flying Scotsman train service from London to Edinburgh in 1928 and breaking records ever since. Entering service almost 90 years ago and still running today, the Flying Scotsman has been a renowned record breaker in its lifetime, including being the first steam locomotive to officially exceed 100mph.
Earlier this year, the custodians of the Flying Scotsman, the National Railway Museum, painted the famous locomotive in LNER black for its unveiling to the public following lengthy restoration, the same livery as the locomotive carried in 1946. It was intended to only wear the black livery until the end of its speed and main line trials before being repainted back into the more well-known LNER Apple Green.
The LNER Black Flying Scotsman for Train Simulator carries the running numbers 103 and 502, a different running number for each side of the cab, as depicted by the NRM and recreated in Train Simulator. Scenarios for the London-Brighton route and BR Mk1 maroon coaches are also included.
