Flying Scotsman

Black Five 45212 and Flying Scotsman

No the title is not an error - Flying Scotsman is tucked in behind the Black Five.

Flying Scotsman was being double-headed on a special on its way north today from London Victoria to Carnforth. The Black Five made spotting her a little difficult but the event was improved by the the sound of a two-cylinder and a three-cylinder working together - they made an interesting rhythm. In the photo the train is passing Ashton in Northants which is not far from Stoke Bruerne. As all Scotsman events the crowds were out even at this rural location.
