One of the LNER stainless steel ‘Master Cutler’ headboards. It was donated to the Railway Preservation Society after the organisation undertook probably the first hire of the Flying Scotsman by a preservation group.
This comprised a return Sheffield Victoria – Marylebone excursion on 15th June 1963. This venture resulted in a loss of £100 – a large sum in those days!
This photograph shows the Flying Scotsman uncoupled from the train on arrival at Marylebone Station, London.
