The Cathedrals Express 60103 also known as the Flying Scotsman passing Reading

60103 Flying Scotsman has been described as the most famous steam locomotive in the world.

Built in 1923 for the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) at Doncaster Works to a design of H.N. Gresley, it was employed on long-distance express trains on the LNER and its successors, British Railways Eastern and North-Eastern Regions, notably on the London to Edinburgh Flying Scotsman train service after which it was named.

The locomotive set two world records for steam traction, becoming the first steam locomotive to be officially authenticated at reaching 100 miles per hour (160.9 km/h) on 30 November 1934, and then setting a record for the longest non-stop run by a steam locomotive when it ran 422 miles (679 km) on 8 August 1989 while in Australia.

Retired from regular service in 1963 after covering 2,076,000 miles (3,341,000 km), Flying Scotsman gained considerable fame in preservation under the ownership of Alan Pegler, William McAlpine, Tony Marchington and finally the National Railway Museum (NRM). As well as hauling enthusiast specials in the United Kingdom, the locomotive toured extensively in the United States and Canada (from 1969 to 1973) and Australia (from 1988 to 1989).

Whilst this locomotive is rostered for the steam hauled sections of the trip listed, it cannot be guaranteed and may be substituted for a different engine.

Testimonials

Herewith the first issue of the Department of Employment - Employment Agency Licence to MAS Recruitment. The licence process was abolished in 1994. Back in 1989 in order to open an employment agency, which was the term used for Agency and Business (Temp & Perm) you had to supply satisfactory employer references, bankers references and trade references in order to trade in this sector. You were required to implement and follow the Employment Agency Act 1973, although still valid in UK law, there have been many changes within the sector, including a variety of amendments to the Act and many new EU directives and statutory regulations that governs the industry today. How things have changed.

" I worked for MAS recruitment for almost ten years and in that time, I found Mike and Sue and the whole team to be friendly, helpful and extremely professional. My circumstances meant that at times I would work on other projects and then return to MAS, on such occasions this was never a problem and I was always welcomed back with a smile and the promise of further work, which was duly provided. As well as the level of professionalism shown by the team at MAS Recruitment, I also found fellow drivers and workers to be similarly pleasant, friendly and hard-working, meaning there was a real team spirit and camaraderie on a regular basis"
