The Flying Scotsman is Gordon's brother from the Mainland. He has two tenders because, on his railway, coal and water are not as available as they are on Sir Topham Hatt’s Railway.

Trivia

  • Flying Scotsman from 1999-2016 is the longest individual character made, being eleven inches with his tenders attached.
  • The prototype 1999 Flying Scotsman featured a taller wooden funnel and smoke-box.
  • 1999-2016 Flying Scotsman's face is based on a face made by Henry in the last illustration of "Tenders For Henry". Flying Scotsman appears in the same illustration, suggesting that Learning Curve mistook Henry for him and thus designed Flying Scotsman's face based on this illustration.
  • The BR logo on Scotsman's cab reads "Mainland Railway" instead of "British Railways".
  • The 1999-2003 Flying Scotsman does not have his name printed on the bottom of his tenders' chassis.
  • The first prototype 2013 Flying Scotsman featured white stripes, whereas the production model has yellow stripes. It is also a darker shade of green.
  • On the back of the 2013 Flying Scotsman box, his tenders are switched around. The LNER lettering is still positioned on the tender nearest to the cab and the 4472 number is still on the rear tender.
