I think there might be a little confusion here. The Caledonian in question was the unique Single express loco built by Neilson and Company in 1886 and which entered service on the Edinburgh to London expresses. Both the Caledonian Railway and the LNWR, which provided some of the rolling stock for these services, were fairly early users of eight wheeled carriages and "Caledonian Cavalcade" includes a reference to the Single No 123 hauling four eight wheeled coaches during the famous 1888 "Races". It subsequently worked on the Perth to Dundee road, before becoming the official inspection engine and the royal train pilot which took place around 1901.
