The Flying Scotsman is to pass through North Herts and South Cambs this morning on its way to Lincoln.

The world’s most famous locomotive was built in Doncaster and was the first engine of the newly-formed London and North Eastern Railway in 1923.

It was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley as part of the A1 class and was named the Flying Scotsman after the London-to-Edinburgh rail service which started daily at 10am in 1862.

You can see the Scotsman pass through our stations on its way from London King’s Cross to Lincoln.
