Flying Scotsman to steam ahead

THE Flying Scotsman should be back under steam later this year in one of the most complex restorations of a steam locomotive ever.

The £4 million (€5.8m)overhaul of the famous engine began after it was bought by the National Railway Museum, York, in 2004.

It is now being adapted so that the locomotive can operate on the UK's main line.

The train - named after the London to Edinburgh rail service - was built in 1923 and designed by Sir Nigel Gresley.
