Flying Scotsman is back – and running

From the Daily Mail via NGForum, this lovely cutaway drawing of the Flying Scotsman.  Reminds one how simple in some ways, and complex in others was the ‘modern’ steam locomotive.  But a lot simpler and more reliable than today’s diesels and electrics filled with electronics!


More excellent pictures here.

PS Apologies for the rest of the paper…..

And from the BBC, more good coverage.
