One of the world’s most famous locomotives, the Flying Scotsman was built in Doncaster in 1923 for a cost of £7,944 (over £491,000 in today’s money). It was the first locomotive to reach 100mph and to travel the world.

Our delightful Flying Scotsman train will power along a wooden rail track with ease at a more modest speed - either as a solo engine or with carriages attached to its magnetic coupling. It even has the famous Apple Green shade. Did you know that in the Second World War it got painted as wartime black before being green again?

Press the button and this battery operated train will start to chug along the track whilst making an authentic sound. The Flying Scotsman is a wonderful realistic addition to any wooden train set! Requires 2 x AAA batteries (not included).

Magnetic couplings ensure the Flying Scotman’s compatibility with all other engines and carriages in the Bigjigs Rail range. Most other major wooden railway brands are compatible. Conforms to current European safety standards.

  • Flying Scotsman replica engine

Was a little sceptical about how strong the flying scotsman would be but happily manages pulling 6 carriages. My little boy loves watching pull the heavy load and how fast it actually it .. great purchase

3 year old loves it

I’d read a few reviews of other trains that lacked power and couldn't pull carriages etc but this had good reviews and didn't disappoint. My 3 year old absolutely loves it and it can climb up bridges and pull lots of carriages behind with no problems. I would 100% purchase again.
