Flying Scotsman

I'm not a train spotter but for anyone old enough to remember the Flying Scotsman and similar steam engines this is happy news.

I believe public services are available from the end of February for anyone interested.

Re: Flying Scotsman

I remember as a young lad in the fifties going from kings cross to Newcastle with mum and dad and my younger brother on several occasions to holiday with my dad's family in Northumberland with its lovely beaches, it was an adventure from the minute we arrived in kings cross with that distiinctive smell of the coal, lubricants etc; and being able to walk along the passageways outside the compartments, and as I remember if you went on a Tuesday or Thursday and returned on either of those days a week or so later you saved a lot of money, and of course in those days you had 1st. 2nd. and 3rd. class carriages, only ever looked in the 1st. class, they were silly money so my dad said.

They were the days, as a boy without a care in the world, and certainly no terrorism.

And a restaurant car where real food was served at a price you could afford. Plus porters to carry your bags.

Re: Flying Scotsman

I can remember standing on an old iron footbridge as steam engines passed under, magical times !

Re: Flying Scotsman

As a kid was taken up to Clapham Junction on the train , regularly to see the Granparents in London. Remember steamers with relish , the noise , smell , thunderous ror as the ground shook as they raced past. Hanging out the window and being given a face full of smuts.

Lovely times , trains were magical then , now soulless , outrageously expensive mass transport.

Do we still have bus and train spotters ?

Re: Flying Scotsman

We went over to bury station before Christmas with grandaughter to their steam train santa express .
It was a superb trip but the amount of older folk telling story's of their experiences of steam was good to hear.
I recall going to Rhyl as kids and the change to Diesel engine was better lol.
The seats and carriages used to be more fun though hiding

Steve et al - for those interested in steam , there is a fantastic trip on the West Highland Line going from Glasgow to Oban and Mallaig . As well as the pleasures you mention the trip takes in some of Scotland's best scenery.

I suppose the Ian Allen books of train numbers are now a thing of the past.
