The Flying Scotsman returned to Hertfordshire earlier today (Friday, June 30), for its second visit in the last week.

Part of its 'Centenary Weekender' celebrations, the famous locomotive left London King's Cross at 8.12am, passing through Hertford North, Watton-at-Stone, Stevenage, Hitchin and Arlesey before 9.30am.

The train will continue its northwards journey, arriving in York shortly after 3pm, before travelling onto Edinburgh tomorrow.

On Monday, July 3, it will steam from Edinburgh to Aberdeen, and head back to York on the following day, where it is owned by the National Railway Museum.

The video below shows the Flying Scotsman passing through Stevenage earlier today.

Officially the first steam locomotive to reach 100mph, 60103 Flying Scotsman left Doncaster Works in 1923.

Designed by Sir Nigel Gresley and built for the LNER, it was named ‘Flying Scotsman’ after operating the daily 10am service between London King’s Cross and Edinburgh Waverley until 1963.
