Flying Scotsman gets stuck on Somerset hill

The famous Flying Scotsman was in Somerset last week, dazzling hundreds of fans.

But a hill near Crowcombe proved to be too much for the most powerful locomotive of its day.

In the end after several failed attempts, another steam locomotive from the West Somerset Railway had to be called to push her up the hill.

The railway said it was down to the wet weather and slippery rails.
