Royal Scot was rebuilt by BR in 1950 and retired in 1962 and purchased by Billy Butlin to be a star attraction at Skegness. Returned to Bressingham Steam Museum as a static exhibit for 30years.............
A bit more biography to add to the Royal Scot's adventures!!

What is the connection to Wigan??
Comment by .Ozymandias. on 1st May 2016 at 20:13
I assume the Wigan connection would be the probability that the photograph would have been taken on Wigan North Western Station. That's just an assumption by the way.

Broady..the connection is Wigan North West station were the locomotive stopped, that's the Wigan connection.
Get a grip!

Sorry!! I didn't recognize that stretch of track.

Connection to Wigan could be because it once pulled some carriages with me in one of them on my first ever trip to London in the early 60s

Garrry no need to be so rude, Broady asked a civil question, get a grip yourself

Broady-look at Saturday's P-a-D, it's the same engine.
