As early as 1925 the London & North Eastern Railway were cannily marketing both the locomotive Flying Scotsman (4472) and the named train service - it certainly probably was a contender for the confident assumption that it was the most famous train in the world. The cover artwork is very potent - worked up by Harry Gawthorn, a well-known commercial artist who also did many posters for the company.
