    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".

    The location is clearly King's Cross loco' shed (otherwise known as "Top Shed") in Camden, London. The viaduct visible behind the loco' as it turns carried York Way over the entrance to the shed yard (now demolished and York Way re-routed as part of the development work to bring HS1 into St.Pancras station close by) and the coaling plant seen in the background as Papyrus leaves the turntable was known widely as "The Cenotaph".
