One of the world’s most famous locomotives is set to pass through Scarborough tomorrow (Monday)
The Flying Scotsman is making its journey from London to the National Railway Museum in York this week following a £4.2 million restoration.
At around 9.36am the engine is set to pass through Malton, Seamer at 9.56am and will arrive in Scarborough at 10.05am. According to www.uksteam.info it is scheduled to leave Scarborough at 12.05pm.
The Flying Scotsman was originally built in Doncaster for the London and North Eastern Railway and was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley. It was completed on February 24, 1923 with the number 1472.
The following year it was renumbered, 4472, and given the name The Flying Scotsman after the London to Edinburgh service which started at 10am in 1862.
Its restoration has seen its traditional black paintwork be revamped in racing green.
