These stunning images show Flying Scotsman in all its glory during the historic steam locomotive’s stay on the Mid Norfolk Railway (MNR).

The Scotsman has been thrilling crowds since arriving in Norfolk earlier this month, as observers attempt to spot the world’s most famous locomotive.

For two consecutive weekends, the lucky ticket holders were transported behind the engine along the MRN.

And there will be a final day between Dereham and Brick Kiln Junction, Saturday October 16th.

Tickets for the race days have long been sold out, but railroad enthusiasts have also flocked for the static display days at Dereham Station.

Flying Scotsman, or LNER Class A3 4472 in its entirety, was built in 1923 and used to haul long-distance express trains along the coast.

In November 1934, it became the world’s first steam locomotive to reach 100 mph.

Although he retired from regular service 60 years ago, the Scotsman enjoyed a successful second career as a touring loco.
