4472 Flying Scotsman at Doncaster

At the Doncaster 150th celebrations LNER 4-6-2 4472 Flying Scotsman has a gathering crowd of admirers who all want to "cab" the Pacific.
Built at Doncaster in 1923 she was the first official 100mph steam locomotive although Great Western fans would argue that City of Truro did it first!
4472 is currently under overhaul at York and not expected back until 2009.

The high quality overhaul work on these steam locomotives is astounding , spot the difference between this one and the brand new Tornado. The engineers are superb.
