She was seen hauling a heritage special excursion through the beautiful Howardian Hills today as part of a one-way trip from Scarborough to Edinburgh operated by a charter firm.

Yesterday she arrived in the seaside town from London via York.

These stunning images captured by photographer Charlotte Graham show the locomotive passing over the River Derwent as she headed back towards York to rejoin the East Coast Main Line.

Yesterday it was announced that extra seats would be sold from York Station for the Scotsman's journey to Edinburgh in May. She will be returning via the West Coast Main Line, along a route that includes a section of the Settle to Carlisle Railway and the iconic Ribblehead Viaduct.
