Flying Scotsman is an A3 Pacific and Gordon's only surviving brother.
Flying Scotsman was completed in 1923, construction having been started under the auspices of the Great Northern Railway. He was built as an A1, initially carrying the number 1472. In the Railway series Flying Scotsman came to Sodor in 1967-8 to cheer his only surviving brother, Gordon, up. He had two tenders at the time he arrived, causing Henry to feel jealous.
- Flying Scotsman is actually his brother Gordon painted light green. Due to this, he has one tender (Unlike his basis) and oval buffers. He possible doesn't have another tender because he wouldn't be turning well since he is connected to his tender.
