Old War Heroes Meeting Again by FavoriteArtMan Old War Heroes Meeting Again by FavoriteArtMan
As inspired by my sprite of her paintwork in NWR WWII black, it gave me an idea.  :)

In this scene, today, as she waits for her passengers to get off, Marie gets a surprise visit from an old friend... although she didn't recognize him at first.

Scott: *backs down to his express as Marie stops*

Marie: Hello.  I'm Marie.  Who are you?  You look familiar to me, but... I can't put a buffer or wheel on it...

Scott: I'm the Flying Scotsman.  I run this express between London and Edinburgh.  I was repaired and rebuilt last year, and my owners gave me this new livery and number.  :)

Marie: The Flying Scotsman...? :?  Wait a minute, now I remember you!  We were in the Second World War together, weren't we?

Scott: Indeed we were.  It almost makes me sound famous, doesn't it?  :)

Marie: You've changed a lot.  ^^

Scott: So have you.  It's been such a long time since we last saw each other.  So, what brings you here?

Marie: My son, Thomas, is away for repairs, and my other son, Timothy, is working with Alfred and Judy in Bill and Ben's place.  So I'm taking the express today, too... although it's heavier than I thought.  ^^;

Scott: Don't worry, Marie.  With any luck, my old friend, you'll be the strongest tank engine of Thomas' class.  He's a good engine.  *guard's whistle blows* Flying Scotsman coming through!  *whistles as he leaves*

Marie: Bye, Scotty!
