For 35 years starting in 1928, the 4472 Flying Scotsman hauled passengers between London and Edinburgh. The daily express train worked eight-hour shifts nonstop, became the first locomotive to officially break 100 m.p.h., and even ferried soldiers and supplies during W.W. II. Through its vigor and ferocity, this eight-wheeled workhorse earned the nickname “the Most Famous Train in the World.” This month, Dreweatts, of the U.K., will auction a gauge-1 model of the Flying Scotsman. It’s only 28 inches long, but details like the fluted motion, fitted steps, handrails, and vacuum hoses make this a worthy replica. ( —Eshaan Jain

This gauge-1 model of the train goes to auction on September 24, with an estimate of $1,200 to $1,800.
