The world's fastest locomotive is embarking on a 'tour' down the East Coast Mainline.
On 3 July 1938, 'Mallard' reached a speed of more than 126mph - a record which has never been broken. Now, the famous steam engine will travel to a series of weekend events in regions close to its permanent home at York's National Railway Museum.
Mallard is scheduled to depart the National Railway Museum in York at 10:30am.
