17-20 1s take large steps.
21-22 2s3s4s take hands on the sides and step up. However, as is designed into The Puggy 1, there is no problem if this is omitted since 2s3s4s1s can easily slip up an extra place in bars 29-32 and so finish 2s3s4s1s with the set in its correct position.
21-24 1s take much smaller steps to finish below 4s, especially so if 2s3s4s have not stepped up.
25-32 In the normal version, all take both hands with partners for the slip down and up; as an alternative, all can take hands on the sides.
Especially in the days before road and air transport became commonplace, this high-speed link between the capitals of England and Scotland has always needed an extremely long and heavy train in order to accommodate the passenger numbers and so the Flying Scotsman has required very powerful locomotives. Many different types, initially coal-fired steam-driven, then diesel-electric and now overhead-wire electric locomotives have been used to haul the Flying Scotsman. Some of the steam-driven locomotives were designed specifically for the route and so the name is often casually used just for some of these locomotives, rather than for the whole train.
