Flying visit brings out crowds
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.
