Tour of restored Flying Scotsman steam engine

The Flying Scotsman steam locomotive has gone on show in York after a five year overhaul.

The steam engine, which was the first to be officially recorded at 100 miles per hour, was bought for the nation in 2004.

Since then, it has undergone major restoration work at the National Railway Museum.

The BBC's Danny Savage said the locomotive, which dates from the 1920s, is currently painted black but will later be changed to traditional green.
