Re: Great Pics of Flying Scotsman

I hear that they are not publishing "Scotsman's" movements because of the crowds that turn up and health and safety fears. Is there an underground movement to release the info?Smiley6600

Re: Great Pics of Flying Scotsman

There is a web page, if that is considered underground?
I missed it yesterday, I was on my way up from over the border when it was in Tweedbank <PAH!>
I would have loved to see it down here.

I just don't get all the hype over an old kettle.

Best place for it is in a museum OR a heritage line.

Enthusiasts for the Flying Scotsman are tapped into a rich vein of British history. Britain gave railways to the world. Steam technology was developed right here in Britain and we all should be proud. Smiley

Yes, indeedy.... the fans have been "all over" twitter and Facebook, with the scheduled departures and estimated times at good "spotting" places... 

 

This was mentioned on the National news on Saturday, I think... it was a "sort of" news report about the hiding of the route and the timetable.... and ended with informative comment that it was available on the social media  ! ! !...

Re: Great Pics of Flying Scotsman

The irony that trying to keep it low key seems to have generated more interest.

 

Disappointed that I will miss it.
