PHOTOGRAPHERS and rail enthusiasts braved the wet weather to catch a glimpse of Flying Scotsman as she made her way from York to Carlisle and back on Sunday.

The much-loved loco first entered service one hundred years ago last February and is currently owned by the National Railway Museum, in York. The museum carried out a 10-year, £4.2 million restoration of the giant of steam, the first locomotive to reach 100mph in 1934.

She has been along the Settle-Carlisle line many times since she was brought back into service with a test run in February 20016 after the restoration work had been completed.

The beautiful engine still pulls the crowds and this photograph captured by photographer Philip Winstanley was taken at Horton-in-Ribblesdale Station on Sunday. Flying Scotsman was heading the Waverley excursion.

We're told Flying Scotsman will be back to steam along the Settle - Carlisle line again next month to provide more picture opportunities.
