and live on Freeview channel 276
The world-famous Flying Scotsman steam train will travel through Fife today, appearing at stations across the Kingdom. The steam locomotive celebrated its centenary in February and will pass through Fife as it travels from Edinburgh to Aberdeen as part of a series of events.
The train will pass through a number of Fife train stations, including:
Dalgety Bay: 10.08am
The Flying Scotsman was the UK’s first steam locomotive to reach 100mph. The Flying Scotsman moniker was first adopted in 1924, but the locomotive’s history actually goes back to the 1860’s when it was named the Special Scotch Express.
The train is currently operated by LNER. The service covers 393 miles in just four hours and runs between Edinburgh Waverley and London Kings Cross.
