The Flying Scotsman has been back in service in 2021 and people are still keen to get a glimpse of the famous train.

The express passenger train service has operated between Edinburgh and London since it first launched back in 1862.

Like with many services last year trips on the locomotive were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, but it resumed this year.

It completed a tour through Yorkshire recently, running the York to Carlisle return in both July and August.

There are still plenty of opportunities to see the train in September and October 2021.
