Title: Flying Scotsman - 25 February 2016
Post by: Angel on February 25, 2016, 09:56:16 am
I presume there were a few people at the station today at 8ish to watch The Flying Scotsman go through.
If anyone has pictures or videos, it would be interesting to see them.

I was at the end of platform 4 and took a few photos. I have a 4k video too. Sadly, I've had to go to work  ;) so I won't post all of them until later, but in the interim, here's a shot from my DSLR via wifi to my ipad:

I love this picture, Aloo, so atmospheric. The light is amazing. Thanks for sharing.
