FLYING SCOTSMAN SPOTTED IN BRIGG
World famous steam locomotive Flying Scotsman has been spotted in Brigg.
The legendary 1920s-built express engine is now preserved and hauling enthusiast special trains across the UK following its latest multi-million pound rebuild.
Meanwhile, a model of Flying Scotsman is the centre-piece of the front window display at the Oxfam Book Shop, on Wrawby Street, and can be viewed alongside many steam railway books available for sale to help the charity.
Our top picture shows Flying Scotsman hauling a special train through Elsham.
These days it is carrying its British Railways number rather than the 4472 it sported during the pre-nationalisation days of the London North Eastern Railway.
