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.
