Manufacturer description

Set 800 104 was chosen for the launch of the flagship 05.40 Flying Scotsman service from Edinburgh to London King's Cross on August 1 2019, along with the 17.30 return working, and for the occasion a new livery 'Celebrating Scotland' was designed, featuring a newly created LNER tartan. Designed by Ken MacDonald of Houston Kiltmakers in Paisley, the tartan colours combine blue for Scotland; red for England; white for the Yorkshire rose; purple for the heather of Scotland; green for the rolling hills and landscape along the ECML and silver grey to represent the tracks of the railway.
