It's no secret that I'm a fan of steam locomotives. I grew up with them as a child on the LNER route and still love to see them whenever I get the opportunity. This page shows just a few photographs of the A3 (4-6-2) 60103 "Flying Scotsman" since its restoration and she came back on the rails in 2016. There are more images of steam locomotives on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Steam and Tornado pages.
The A3 60103 “Flying Scotsman” was just one classic locomotive which took part in the National Railway Museum “Shed Bash” at Shildon from July 23rd until July 31st, 2016. She was joined by the A4 Pacific (60009) “Union of South Africa” and the V2 (4771) "Green Arrow”. The mini slide show above has 15 images of "Flying Scotsman" just after she had arrived at Shildon on Wednesday, July 20th.
I never get sick and tired of seeing "Flying Scotsman" at speed. This was taken at Bradbury on Sunday, July 17th, 2016 about 8.45pm as she hauled "The Waverley" southbound to York.
Not as bright as she was at Bradbury a week earlier but good to see nevertheless. "Flying Scotsman" hauling "The Waverley" excursion northbound from York to Carlisle through Ferryhill on Sunday, July 11th 2016.
The sun was certainly shining bright at Bradbury, in County Durham, on the evening of Saturday, July 2nd, as the A3 60103 (4-6-2) "Flying Scotsman" headed southbound hauling "The Hadrian" on an excursion organised by The Railway Touring Company.
Two more of "Flying Scotsman" at Bradbury on Saturday, July 2nd as she hauled "The Hadrian" excursion southbound to York.
The A3 (4-6-2) 60103 "Flying Scotsman" at Ferryhill in County Durham on Saturday, June 11th, 2016. She was hauling "The Tynesider" excursion from York to Newcastle and was seen southbound here on her return journey after stopping for thirty minutes. Steam enthusiasts had a wonderful opportunity to get a series of photographs.
Getting up a little bit of steam as she prepared to leave Ferryhill on her journey back to York.
Two more images of this wonderful locomotive at Ferryhill - quite close to were the original railway station used to be at Ferryhill South Junction.
This view of her was taken from the other side of the tracks when she first arrived in Ferryhill on her way down to Newcastle and passing through Durham. As mentioned earlier, because she did stay over for about 30 minutes, I had the chance to drive over the bridge and see her as she took on water. "The Tynesider" excursion ran from, and to, Cleethorpes - York - Newcastle - Bedlington - Morpeth - York and was organised by The Railway Touring Company.
The A3 60103 (4-6-2) "Flying Scotsman" hauling "The Cathedrals Express" southbound at Bradbury on the afternoon of Tuesday, May 17th, 2016.
Despite the "Flying Scotsman" times being withheld due to trespass risk I was fortunate enough to find out when she was heading north through Ferryhill, in County Durham, on Saturday, May 14th, 2016 en-route to Edinburgh. The two photographs directly above show the newly restored A3 (4-6-2) 60103 hauling "The Cathedrals Express" excursion on a trip to Scotland.
