I (foolishly perhaps) travelled into Chesterfield last Saturday to see the "Flying Scotsman" passing through the station there. With hindsight, I'd have been better to take the shorter drive into Alfreton instead, as the Scotsman was scheduled to stop there for about 8 minutes, whereas back in Chesterfield, and with signals at green, it went rattling through at about 70mph, so all I managed was a 'full frontal' shot, grabbed as it blasted through. The sound of it was a lot better than my pic though, and I ought to have been on platform 1 rather than 3.......live and learn!

I wish I had known about it before the event, a mate of mine saw it and video'd it. Absolutely awesome.

Sorry Pete, I didn't get to know about it myself until the day before, bro-in-law emailed me about it. The website uksteam is where all the details are posted if you're not aware.......worth keeping an eye on from time to time.
