The Flying Scotsman and a first Visit to Tyseley

and a first Visit to Tyseley

The Flying Scotsman

The Flying Scotsman

The first time I saw any part of the Flying Scotsman in ‘real life’ was at the National Railway Museum on a day out in 2007 – not much to look at at that time!

The next occasion was another day trip in 2013, when work on the loco had progressed but, by the dusty appearance of ‘Scotsman’, had stopped for some time.

This third time the The Flying Scotsman’ was in all its glory – a quite magnificent sight for lovers of steam locomotives.

I have included a further gallery of photos of other locomotives at the Tyseley Locomotive Works.

There’s plenty to see at Tyseley, including another of my favourite locomotives, No.71000 ‘Duke of Gloucester’ now being ‘disassembled’.
