Flying Scotsman: 100 Years, 100 Voices

Explore stories from people whose lives have been touched by the locomotive, plus objects from the National Railway Museum archive.

Flying Scotsman lives in many people’s minds as the world’s most famous locomotive. To mark a century since it was built, the National Railway Museum will create a new exhibition that celebrates a myriad of voices in varying capacities to represent the far-reaching impact of the engine as a lasting testament to its life.

The exhibition, Flying Scotsman: 100 Years, 100 Voices, will showcase documents, photographs and stories from the museum’s archives as well as from a recent public call-out. A specially commissioned exhibition film will cement the legacy of the locomotive through the lives it touched.
