Today was a very special day as the restored Flying Scotsman completed its inaugural run from London Kings Cross to the National Railway Museum in York. Everyone of a certain age must remember the Scotsman with affection as do I. There's something primaeval about steam trains even if they were rather sooty. The engine had been out of use for 10 years while all the refurbishments were made. I have to thank my husband for the photos in this post as I stayed closer to home and walked down to the town to watch her pass but failed to get any photos. It was fabulous to see her steaming past a few yards away.
I enjoyed my walk and snapped a favourite group of trees on the way,
PS Eek! I've just discovered this is my 900th post! Who knew I had so much to say? lol
