Flying Scotsman arrives at the Severn Valley Railway

The world famous Flying Scotsman steam locomotive has arrived at the Severn Valley Railway. The engine will be hauling special trains on the 16-mile heritage line from tomorrow until Sunday.

Today Flying Scotsman travelled by rail under its own steam to Kidderminster from Tyseley Locomotive Works in Birmingham. Our video shows it between Blakedown and Kidderminster. The five-day event at the Severn Valley is called Pacific Power and also features another famous engine, the newly built Tornado. The duo are expected to draw in large crowds.

Flying Scotsman was credited in the record books as being the first steam loco to officially reach the speed of 100 miles per hour. It gained worldwide fame after making trips to America and Australia.
