Anyway, Forest Hall is a north eastern suburb of Newcastle, adjacent Killingworth. Until the mid 1960s it was a sleepy village with a railway station on the main line to Edinburgh. The old Forest Hall station was closed down and a public house, `The Flying Scotsman`, was opened on the site of the old station in May 1969. On the opening day of the pub, The Flying Scotsman steam train blew it's whistle as it passed by.
