The Anonymous Widower

Crossrail And The Flying Scotsman

I went to Royal Oak today to takr pictures of the Crossrail portal and the Flying Scotsman.


  • Sir Kenneth Grange is an engine named after the HST designer to celebrate forty years service of the trains. There’s more in this article in Rail Magazine.
  • The Flying Scotsman went in backwards to Paddington first.
  • Crossrail will have reversing sidings to the west of the bridge, with an extension to Westbourne Park bus garage built over the top.
  • The Crossrail portal at Royal Oak is probably the one with the best view of the tunnel entrance.

Due to my difficult position, the pictures of the train were rather bad.
