The Flying Scotsman on the Ribblehead Viaduct

Quick video from my outing earlier to see the Flying Scotsman traversing the Ribblehead Viaduct.


Fantastic, I could almost smell and hear it, what a beautiful train.
Was there a diesel at the back? Normally there in case of engine problems.

I think there was an engine at the rear, unfortunately my low battery forced a hasty retreat so I didn’t catch it all as intended.

Nice video, Mark. :+1: I just posted a couple of my photos from today. They had the diesel on the front. Kind of spoiled the shot I was going for. I would have said you had better luck but maybe not with the crash landing!

Great capture :clap::ok_hand::+1:

It’s annoying the mini 2 doesn’t capture audio like the old Mavic Pro did, would have made the recording more authentic.
