Class 91 111 "For the Fallen" to be preserved at the..
"National Railway Museum
"!!!

From Paul Gentleman:- "Following recommendation by the Railway Heritage Designation Advisory Board, the Board of Trustees’ of the Science Museum have designated the locomotive 91 111, its nameplates and the vinyl wrap. As far as we can see, this is the first time a livery has been designated and ensures its presence on the rail network for many years to come. Once its working life comes to an end, it will then become part of the National Collection and hopefully displayed at the National Rail Museum, York" (22nd Mar '15)

Congratulations to Paul Gentleman and Caroline Black for all their hard work on the project and recent announcement of their engagement.
Regards Mully.

Edinburgh 16th Dec '14 memorial event..

The specially-designed East Coast locomotive number 91 111, named ‘For The Fallen’, carries a livery filled with images, stories and tributes to regiments and people who served in them across the East Coast route.
A commemoration of Edinburgh’s own heroes of the First World War has taken place at Waverley Station. The memorial event was in front of East Coast’s locomotive 91111 ‘For The Fallen’, which included a livery filled with images, stories and tributes to regiments along the East Coast route and the people who served in them during the First World War.
The 16th Battalion The Royal Scots was raised by Sir George McCrae, a self made businessman and prominent political figure in Edinburgh, who was also a director of Heart of Midlothian Football Club – ‘Hearts’ to football fans in Scotland’s capital city. McCrae realised that if he could get players to join his battalion, supporters would join to serve alongside their sporting heroes.
