书籍描述

内容简介
A star of the golden age of steam, the "Flying Scotsman" broke the world speed record in 1934 and has enthralled millions with her beauty and power. Uniquely, her postwar career has been even more varied and exciting than her early triumphs. The twists and turns of the engine's history are all detailed in this thorough account, from being nearly abandoned on a tour of the U.S. to being owned briefly and unsuccessfully by pop mogul Pete Waterman and put up for sale yet again when the company that owned her went bankrupt in 2003. Filled with numerous interviews with those involved with the "Scotsman" over the years, this is the story of a unique and remarkable train.
