Scots Guardsman (Royal Scot)
Number 6115 Scots Guardsman in real life is one of only two of the original 70 Royal Scot 4-6-0's still in existence. The first 50 of the original engines were built in 1927 by the North British Locomotive Company in Glasgow in less than a year - the model which was completed in 2008 took nine years! All the original engines were rebuilt by Sir William Stanier commencing in 1943. Scots Guardsman was unique in being the only one to run with the characteristic smoke deflectors whilst still being an LMS engine for a few months in late 1947 before British Railways came into existence. It is painted in the LMS glossy black livery - a change from the more usual BR green.
