Get on Board with the New Flying Scotsman Range from Carousel Calendars
A recent opening weekend for the newly restored Flying Scotsman locomotive at the National Railway Museum has attracted 10,000 visitors on the first day alone, a clear testament to the popularity of this British icon.
After being purchased by the National Railway Museum for £2.3 million in 2004, the Scotsman has undergone a decade-long restoration, supported by grants from the National Heritage Memorial Fund, the Heritage Lottery Fund – and through public generosity. It returned to the rails in a glorious UK tour in January 2016 and has drawn in crowds across the country.
A National Icon
It is clear that this historical icon has been taken into the Nation’s heart and Carousel Calendars has carefully crafted a 2017-dated range to reflect this spirit. The products from the publisher include a Square Wall calendar and a Deluxe A5 diary, with both combining beautiful images of the locomotive throughout its lifetime with facts and figures about its dramatic story, from its origins in 1923 to present day.
These content-rich products, providing photos, posters, commemorative postcards and more, are certain to appeal to the many fans visiting the locomotive as a little piece of history to take away and hang in their home.
