We anticipate that the restoration work to return iconic locomotive Flying Scotsman to steam will be completed in 2015, after a milestone moment in the project was safely passed this month. Read the latest statement about progress, or view the recent images from the workshop.
Flying Scotsman was saved by the nation in 2004 and is a star icon of the National Collection. It's currently being restored to make it fit to return to mainline operation.
