Some steam trains from the National Railway Museum in York (UK). If I have a favourite, it is the pannier tank engine – the brown one – but I do hate that colour! It is a lovely engine when in the traditional dark green of the Great Western Railway.
The Evening Star was the last steam locomotive ever built for service in the UK. The blue streamlined train, the Mallard, held the speed record.
Flying Scotsman, Arten Gill Viaduct, Dentdale, Cumbria ,England.
After a £4.2 million refurbishment, Flying Scotsman has returned to the UK’s mainline. One of the jewels in the crown of the National Railway Museum’s Collection, it is being presented to a new generation of Scotsman fans.
The Mallard locomotive broke the world steam speed record by travelling at 126mph 75 years ago today (on 3rd July 1938). The record is still held by the Mallard to this day. It is now being reunited with its five other sister locomotives at the National Railway Museum in York. Being a fan of steam trains I find this exciting and really interesting as part of our history.
