Preserved A3 class locomotive, No. 4472 - FLYING SCOTSMAN at Leicester Central.

L3100. On 15 June, 1963, Leicester Central Station was honoured with a visit from the world famous locomotive, No. 4472 - FLYING SCOTSMAN. The former LNER locomotive was purchased from British Railways by Alan Peglar, who proceeded to have his prize repainted into its old LNER livery. In this form, 4472 travelled the country on rail tours, drawing crowds wherever it went and thus enforcing its fame.
