Scotsman at Carnforth

4472 Flying Scotsman at Carnforth.

The news is good she has gone to Riley's for the overhaul to be completed. Perhaps not next year but 2015 should see her back....

The final decision on whether to proceed with the overhaul at Bury will be taken when the state of the frames behind the cylinders is known. If all is well, Riley & Sons will complete the overhaul some time after the summer of 2015, and then manage 'Flying Scotsman' for the subsequent two years.
