Additional product information
2006 is the 40th anniversary of the world famous "Flying Scotsman" receiving a second tender with 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 this years range. 1,000 models will be produced in total with each model complete with certificate, water and oil fillters 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 mainline.Please note that the second tender is not equipped to hold water.
