Steam enthusiasts cheered the iconic Flying Scotsman as it chugged through Melton again today (Friday).

Onlookers from the platforms at Melton station and the nearby Burton Street road bridge were thrilled to see the engine, which has been reconditioned at a cost of £4.2 million, as it made its way from London up to York.

If you want to see the Flying Scotsman, it will return to the tracks at Melton on November 4, stopping en route to pick up passengers.
