Full steam ahead as Flying Scotsman set to return to mainline by end of 2015
Historic locomotive nearing the end of £4m restoration work that began in 2004, upgrading it to resume run from London to York
The historic locomotive Flying Scotsman could return to steam later this year as a £4m restoration project that has lasted more than a decade nears completion.
The overhaul of the famous engine began after it was bought by the National Railway Museum in 2004 for £2.3m. It is being fitted with the equipment needed to operate on the mainline with a view to trials beginning before the end of 2015.
