Two icons meet as Flying Scotsman crosses Forth Bridge

The Flying Scotsman has crossed the Forth Bridge on a journey marking its return to Scotland.

Steam train enthusiasts greeted the locomotive as it travelled from on the Borders Railway to Edinburgh and Fife on Sunday.

It followed a U-turn by Network Rail, which had said that the engine could not travel on the route.

The Flying Scotsman can be seen at the Bo'ness and Kinneil Railway until late afternoon on Monday.
