Flying Scotsman - Barrow Upon Soar - Leicestershire

The Flying Scotsman steams through Barrow on Soar in Leicestershire on a run between London and York. The Flying Scotsman toured the country in 2016 after a overhaul to bring her back to optimal working condition and securing the title of the oldest mainline working locomotive on Britain’s tracks. The appeal to keep the steam icon in Britain was supported by a £1.8 million grant from the National Heritage Memorial Fund and the generosity of the public. The restoration has also been undertaken with the help of a Heritage Lottery Fund grant of £275,000. (source:http://www.flyingscotsman.org.uk/about/)
