The scene also includes the unique LNER Ivatt/Gresley Atlantic, no 4419.

Nigel Gresley experimentally modified 4419 by fitting a booster engine attached to the trailing wheels. This was designed to assist when starting heavy trains and when going uphill. This modification required the lengthening of the frames and allowed room for a pacific type cab.

The train pulled by 4419 is made up of pre-1928 Pullman carriages in the original Pullman livery.
