OK, so we're not getting any younger here at the Talent Team - watching a documentary about the Flying Scotsman with a train obsessed son.

Here're some pub quiz style facts about the great machine:
  • Built in Doncaster
  • Travelled over 100mph in the 1930's
  • Built in 1923
  • Achieved over 2 million miles trouble free service
  • Had its own barber shop
Imagine the skills, passion, dedication and innovation required - all of which could have been passed on - how different might our industrial/manufacturing capabilities have been?

Let's get behind the push for real skills STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) now and create another generation of people with skills that will be the envy of the world.
