"The Return of the Flying Scotsman"

Share photos on twitter with Twitpic

It's not often I gush - but wow! Ian Riley's works have done a terrific job on the boiler of 4472 Flying Scotsman. The above photograph comes from the 4472 Twitter account.

Seeing it looking so complete is truly a joy to see. The last time I saw this engine in the flesh, it looked a very tired steam locomotive.

Reborn from the ashes, some might say. Here's to the NRM and all who've worked on 4472 - job's a good 'un!

Until next time!
