  • The shots list for this clip wrongly identifies the locomotive in it as "Flying Scotsman".

    That identification has been made as a result of the nameplate reading "The Flying Scotsman" on the front of the loco. However that nameplate actually refers to the Flying Scotsman express passenger train service that ran between London and Edinburgh.

    The loco is, in fact, LNER Gresley Class A3 locomotive No. 2750, named "Papyrus".
