The Flying Scotsman was used on the London to Edinburgh service and on the 1st May 1928 she pulled the inaugral train on this route.

The Lickey Incline by Terence Cuneo (Y)
LMS no.5593 thunders up the steepest gradient in the country. Terence Cuneo produced this fine painting form photographs taken by Patrick Whitehouse who commisioned the painting. The Lickey Incline lies between Birmingham and Gloucester and is the most famous gradient in England. As such, it posed major operation difficulties during the steam era. The engine in this work is the LMS Jubilee Kolaphur - an engine still in operation on a private line in England today - which Patrick Whitehouse had bought as a wreck and restored at the Tyseley Railway Museum in Birmingham. The Kolaphur was one of the few engines strong enough to pull a passenger train up the infamous Lickey Incline without needing assistance from another engine.
