The Scottish area of the LNER consisted of the former NBR and GNoSR territories, the NBR the larger owning approximately 1,370 miles of permanent way and over 1,000 locomotives. At the other end of the scale the GNoSR was the smaller with approximately 330 miles of track and about 120 locomotives with the added disadvantage of being isolated from the rest of the LNER system by 38 miles of running powers over LM&SR track from Aberdeen to Kinnaber Junction.

In addition to its substantial passenger traffic, the NBR brought to the LNER the revenue from their monopoly over the coal traffic in the Kingdom of Fife, whereas the GNoSR saw a steady revenue from its fish traffic out of the northern ports and the movement of large amounts of material connected with the Whisky industry.
