Flying Scotsman (15 May 2016)

Flying Scotsman
After her return to steam, Flying Scotsman paid a visit to Scotland. Along with many others I got out my long lens and stood on top of the multi-story car park at the Ferrytoll Park & Ride. She was idling down from the bridge and the background of bright yellow gorse wasn’t ideal, but I was delighted to see her.

She is currently turned out in her BR guise, complete with smoke deflectors. Personally I think there is almost no colour better than BR Green for almost any steam engine, other than Garter Blue on an A4 and black on Black 5s and Black 8s.
