4472 1920/30's backhead pictures/info required

Post by greenglade » Fri Mar 31, 2017 10:53 am

Hi guys

A plea for help.....I'm looking for images/info on Flying Scotsman's backhead ideally during the late 30's but anything while from LNER days may do. Any info on the various fittings would be a bonus or if someone knows for certain which of today's fittings are from her LNER days. Some may recall that I'm in the process of building a very highly detailed 5" gauge model and I'd like to get the cab as close as possible to how it was in 1939. So far all I have is one bad images from the 1929 film but these are too dark to be of much use.

Hoping there's the info that I require out there somewhere..

Kind regards
