The "Queen of Scots" service commenced in 1928, but its development can be traced back to Grouping, in 1923, when the fledgling LNER acquired a number of Great Eastern Pullmans. Instead of allocating them on a piecemeal basis, as the GER had done, the LNER's management decided to open up a new luxury service to Newcastle, via Leeds and Harrogate.
