Serious RR collection on Craigslist

I tripped over this new ad on Craigslist.  It looks like a very serious RR collection is being liquidated.  Perhaps some of the collectors in here might be interested.

Alan Pegler's  ex-LNE Flying Scotsman 4-6-2 and a British passenger train (8 cars I think) steamed down through central California on the Western Pacific and into Oakland on September 27, 1971.  This was the end of a national tour for the train.

The Flying Scotsman and train then operated a three car passenger train along the San Francisco embarcadero on the S.F. Belt Railway during the spring of 1972.  Perhaps this is what is remembered.  Ultimately the entire train was pulled back to Stockton on the WP and placed in storage at the Army Supply base.  Later the "Flying Scotsman" locomotive, a famous and well-loved steamer in the UK, was returned to the UK and remains in steam there to this day.

Hope this helps!
