The Flying Scotsman ran between London and Edinburgh

It's valued at ?�25,000-35,000 ($36,243-50,740) ahead of the February 9 sale.

The train ran between London and Edinburgh between 1862 and 1963 and famously smashed several records for speed - including becoming the first train to hit 100mph, in 1934.

This plate was fixed to the side of the train from 1930 onwards.

Recently the train has undergone a ?�4.2m ($6m) restoration and will be back on the rails in May 2016.
