Gordon and Flying Scotsman, the only "remaining" Pacifics

Gordon's Brothers were the LNER A1 and A3 Pacifics built between 1922 and 1935. They were the remaining relatives of Gordon who were mentioned in passing in the Railway Series.

Bio

In Enterprising Engines, Sir Topham Hatt mentions that Gordon's brothers have all been scrapped, with the exception of Flying Scotsman. This made Gordon feel surly, so the Fat Controller arranged for Flying Scotsman to visit in order to cheer him up.

In James and the Diesel Engines, Gordon told Donald and Douglas that he and his brothers used to be painted green.

Trivia

  • Seventy-nine LNER A1 and A3 Pacifics were produced: Fifty-two A1s were built, fifty-one of those were rebuilt into A3s, the first one was rebuilt into an A1/1 and twenty-seven A3s were newly built. Lemberg and Pretty Polly were other members of this class. The Flying Thistle and a Workshop Engine are based on them. A list of all these locomotives can be found here.
  • Many of the locomotives were named after racehorses except for Great Northern, Sir Frederick Banbury, Flying Scotsman, Prince of Wales, Centenary and Dick Turpin.
  • These locomotives were also Mallard, Green Arrow, Spencer and Ryan's cousins.
  • Despite this, a few of Gordon's siblings were named after female horses. This made them his sisters such as Blink Bonny, Pretty Polly, Tagalie, Sceptre, Shotover and Ladas.
