Description

East Coast are running a specially designed locomotive marking the centenary since the beginning of WWI. The insignia of Tyneside Scottish regiment is unveiled on locomotive 91 111 which began running on 14 October 2014, 100 years to the day since official authority was given to raise its first battalion. Today, 26 October 2014, the train arrived a little late at 16.10 from Peterborough. Sadly it arrived at Platform 9 which only allowed us to film one side of the locomotive, but we hope to get another opportunity to see the other side.
