WATCH: retired driver watches Flying Scotsman's return

Tommy Haydon began driving trains in 1947, and did so for more than 40 years.

He was at Carlisle Railway Station today to see the return of the Flying Scotsman... and he's confident he could still drive it:

They were buying these, and doing them up, and they asked me if I wanted to volunteer to drive them. So I was one of the volunteers."

"Would you have liked to have had a go driving it again?"

"Oh aye I could still drive it."

– Tommy Haydon
