The Flying Scotsman

Today at Cathiron Bridge

Popular trainspotting location midway between
Nuneaton and Rugby on the West Coast Main Line.


Built in 1923, The Flying Scotsman is an icon of the steam age.

My husband (red jacket collar) joined quite a few more
to catch a glimpse as it passed by.  Not far from where we live :).

That is a beauty. Looks like it just came out of the manufacturing plant!

It's a gem. We went to the railway museum in York when I was there and it was fascinating to see the old trains so I would have been out there to see this too!

What a beautiful engine! Well cared for, obviously.

It's been beautifully maintained. I'd love to see it working in person.
