Chasewater Railway Museum – Master Cutler Headboard
Chasewater Railway Museum
Master Cutler Headboard
This is one of the Museum’s prize possessions.
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.
