The Flying Scotsman steam train prepares to leave Bury Bolton Street rail station in Bury yesterday on the East Lancashire Railway. The Flying Scotsman, the first steam locomotive to reach 100 miles an hour, was yesterday making its first run for more than a decade after a £4mn upgrade programme to bring it into line with modern regulations. Built in Doncaster in 1923 for the London and North Eastern Railway, the A1 class locomotive became famous when displayed at the British Empire Exhibition in London the following year.
