Fly­ing visit brings out crowds

Wales On Sunday - - NEWS -

MUCH-LOVED lo­co­mo­tive The Fly­ing Scots­man steamed through Wales yes­ter­day.

The world’s most fa­mous steam train car­ried pas­sen­gers through Ch­ester and the Dee es­tu­ary, speed­ing past Prestatyn, Rhyl and Col­wyn Bay be­fore cross­ing Stephen­son’s Conwy Cas­tle Bridge.

Trav­el­ling from Crewe on a route dubbed the Ynys-Mon Ex­press, the steam-hauled An­gle­sey-bound jour­ney saw the train stop at Ban­gor for wa­ter be­fore de­part­ing for Holy­head, then back to Ch­ester.

It is pic­tured ar­riv­ing a Llan­dudno Junc­tion watched by a crowd of en­thu­si­asts.
