Interview of the month: LNER Society

13 July 2022
Howard Smith speaks with Rupert Brown, Chairman of the LNER Society to discover the benefits of membership, explain how the society has evolved, and uncover interesting stories...

2023 will mark the centenary of the formation of the LNER, and arguably, one of its most-famous locomotives, No. 4472 Flying Scotsman.

The LNER Society is dedicated to historical research and archiving of LNER-related documents, photographs and media and has plans to mark the occasion next year by studying the lasting legacy of the LNER and its 25-year-long reign.
