Description

Before 1900, passengers on the Flying Scotsman had to rely on a 30-minute comfort stop at York for a chance to enjoy a hot meal. This all changed when the East Coast Joint Stock was introduced in 1900. The new carriages had restaurant cars, toilets and corridor connections. In consequence the comfort stop was cut to 15 minutes.
