1969-2019: THE USA TOUR 50TH ANNIVERSARY The 50th anniversary of Flying Scotsmans tour of the United States is being celebrated with a special collectors model.

In addition to the twin tendered 4472 Flying Scotsman, the exhibition train consisted of nine coaches; BR Mk.1 BCK
The model has many key features including a cow catcher, brass bell, American style headlight and gold plating to the metal parts on the locomotive. Plus a second tender. The model will also be sold certificated and in a presentation box with a wooden display plinth.
