Loughborough Echo - - NEWS -

THE world fa­mous Fly­ing Scots­man train passed through Lough­bor­ough as it made tracks across Le­ices­ter­shire.

The train was in the area on Fri­day, Septem­ber 15, and passed through around 12.55pm.

The first lo­co­mo­tive to ever clock 100mph left Lon­don’s King’s Cross sta­tion at around 8.43am on Fri­day, Septem­ber 15, as part of the Moors and Dales Ex­press and will ar­rive in Dar­ling­ton at 5.45pm where the train will di­vide.

The jour­ney is part of a three night trip where pas­sen­gers will ex­plore the York­shire coun­try­side and his­toric cities.

The train took the route from Lon­don Vic­to­ria on to the Mid­land main line across the fa­mous Har­ring­worth Viaduct in Rut­land and then on to a short break in York.

The train also passed through Mel­ton Mow­bray, then onto Sileby, Bar­row-upon-Soar and Lough­bor­ough.
