Flying Scotsman crossed the Pennies on Tuesday 7th June 2016 on a positioning move for Wednesday's 'Cambrian Coast Express' to London Paddington. I caught her three times on her movement at Slaithwaite Viaduct, departing Marsden into the tunnel under the Pennies and finally at Alderley Edge. I then moved onto Crewe where she was on display at the Heritage Centre for the evening. A gallery of pictures can be found by click here...
