BBC Rewind: The Flying Scotsman through the years

BBC Rewind looks at the history of the Flying Scotsman as it prepares to return to the railways.

Having undergone significant restoration, it will make its first journey in ten years along the East Coast mainline.

The steam engine was initially built in Doncaster, but took its name from the Edinburgh to London service on which it ran.

After the last original locomotive class member was withdrawn in 1966, the train toured the world, becoming an icon of British engineering.
