Photographer and rail historian Ian Thomas captured the iconic Flying Scotsman steam train passing through the county as part of its centenary celbrations.
“These pictures show LNER-built A3 Class 4-6-2 Flying Scotsman passing Cam and Dursley station on Friday,” said Ian.
“It is currently sporting British Railways livery and number as BR 60103. It was a light engine and support coach movement from York National Rail Museum to Bristol St Philips Marsh depot in order to work the first of its programme of Centenary trains. Today it was from Bristol Temple Meads to Cornwall and back.
“This tour was the first of a number of tours this year with the Kings Lynn-based company, the Railway Touring Company. Also, I took a photo exactly 40 years ago on Sunday March 13th 1983 of the same loco on a steam charter tour on its old stomping ground, that is on the East Coast Mainline, climbing Stoke bank between Essendine and Grantham.”
