One of a batch of 18 new EE Type 4 locomotives delivered to Gateshead MPD just a few days earlier, no D243 makes an appearance at Waverley on 9 April 1960 with the up Flying Scotsman. Is that a bullion coach immediately behind the locomotive? [With thanks to Bill Jamieson] Update - from Dave Franks 'the coach behind the loco is an LNE Thompson 'matchboard' full brake built post war. It is still available as a kit in 4mm scale.'
