The Flying Scotsman

Recommended Posts

We had the refurbished "Flying Scotsman" steam train through our county today and I took my Father-in-law who is 89yrs old to see it, he has only ever seen it in a museum not live on the railway.

We were lucky as it remained dry even if a little dull after days of continuous rain.

A fantastic sight and a real please to be able to grab some photos of it under steam!

@Iansky: I like the black&white version best. More drama. :)   The billowing steam/smoke gives you a vivid impression on how "the west" probably got conquered.

Btw: if you add a little comment yourself to the images in the gallery, that gives your viewers a chance to comment right on the spot. If you are not the owner, there is no way to start a comment on a gallery pic.

Very nice photo. Good on us these beasts don't operate on a regular basis, or the climate would be even more negatively affected.  Luckily we only take digital pictures, no more developing with nasty chemicals. ;-)

Stunning classic shot. Subject looks alive. Spent an unfair amount of time in on and under steam locos here in Aus - in maintenance and rebuild and when steamed up. I can almost smell it.
