Iconic Flying Scotsman passes through Spalding




The world-famous Flying Scotsman was pulled through Spalding on Tuesday. The iconic steam locomotive was captured on camera by reader Thomas Woolley as it passed through the town on a double headed light engine on its way to Southall in west London.

It was being pulled by the popular Black 5 Steam Locomotive which is a big favourite of steam enthusiasts. The 44871 worked a leg of the famous 15 Guniea Special which was the last main line steam trip before a ban was imposed in 1968.
