Smoke and steam fill the air as Fly­ing Scots­man tack­les the chal­leng­ing gra­di­ent at Dain­ton Banks near New­ton Ab­bot.

The leg­endary 95-year-old lo­co­mo­tive was paired up with Black 5, an­other his­toric steam en­gine, on its first visit to Devon in 15 years.

Crowds gath­ered to wave and cheer the en­gines along the Great Western Rail­way route to Corn­wall on 4 Oc­to­ber.
