Back On Track… The Flying Scotsman

York National Railways Museum is getting set to welcome back a living legend this February… the Flying Scotsman.

Flying Scotsman

After a 10-year restoration, the 1923 locomotive moves to the York National Railway Museum and in March it will be running on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway.

The locomotive set two world records for steam traction, becoming the first steam locomotive to be officially authenticated at reaching 100 miles per hour (160.9 km/h) on 30 November 1934.

Mike Kelly, chairman of ELR, said:
“If you think about iconic, great British creations, Flying Scotsman is up there. It is a national treasure. People have been starved for many years of being able to see this beautiful machine in action; I’m sure there will be some emotional scenes when it’s running again.”
