Flying Scotsman in Steam at The East Lancs Railway

60103 Flying Scotsman is seen on 8th October at the East Lancs Railway.  

In a much unadvertised first test run, following restoration, the A3 joins the days steam service, assisted by Standard 4, 80097. This gave a great chance to see the loco, up close on the platform, and a ride behind her at normal prices and the manic crowds.

Also seen on the video are Peak, 45018 on the diesel service and Class 50, 50015 Valiant on a driver experience train.
