Flying Scotsman on roads again

Flying Scots on the road again: King's Cross station, one of the biggest train stations in London, witnessed a historical moment last Thursday. Flying Scotsman, one of the most famous trains in the world, left King's Cross station to go to York, England. The train, whose reputation spread in 1928, was named Flying Scotsman-Flying Scotsman because of its speed. On the train, which reduced the journey between London and Edinburgh to only eight hours, in that period, in addition to food service, even a hairdresser service was offered to passengers. Flying Scotsman, the first train to go between London and Edinburgh without stopping, also holds a record as the first train to reach 1934 km / h in the UK in 160.
The train, built in 1922 and designed by Sir Nigel Gresley, was first exhibited at the British Empire Exhibition in 1924, and costs about 8 pounds (32000 TL). The train, which was always green in color, was only temporarily painted black during World War II, and was retired by the British Railway in 2. The 1963-meter long train has covered over 21 million km so far. Flying Scotsman, which has a place in the children's book series called The Railway Series, can be found even in the 4 film 2000 Dalmatians. A full 102 million pounds (2004 million TL) was spent for the 10-year restoration work of the train, which was purchased by the National Railway Museum in 4.2. Those who do not want to miss the opportunity to travel by this train, which has become one of the most important symbols of England on Thursday, paid 18 pounds (450 TL) per person. The train, which was sent off by thousands of people at King's Cross station, went to York to be exhibited in the National Railway Museum, the world's largest railway museum. The train, which will stay in York until March 1890, will tour England afterwards. This very special meeting, broadcast live on television, became one of the most talked about topics in England this week.
