Mr Pegler saved The Flying Scotsman from the scrapyard and took it to America and Canada. However, as he told a London Bankruptcy Court, "I've been taken for a ride of my own choice...a very costly ride". Mr Pegler, 52, admitted total debts of more than £132, 000. Afterwards he said, "I fell for the Flying Scotsman when I sat in the cab at the age of four. It's been an enduring love and I have no regrets. He bought the engine for £3, 000 when it became redundant in 1963. He ran excursions in Britain and then took it on a money raising tour of North America. But the tour flopped and the locomotive is now being stored in a US army camp. As a result Mr Pegler said, he lost his family fortune - which at one time was about £250, 000 - and had to sell properties at home and abroad. Now he has a deficiency of $4, 160.
The Flying Scotsman, designed by Sir Herbert Nigel Gresley, is an express passenger train service that has operated between Edinburgh and London, the capitals of Scotland and England, via the East Coast Main Line. The service began in 1862; the name was officially adopted in 1924.
On 1st May 1928 The A1 class locomotive 4472 Flying Scotsman hauled the inaugural non-stop train from London Kings Cross to Edinburgh. 392 miles (631 km) without stopping, a record at the time for a scheduled service.
