Hundreds of people turned out to see the majestic Flying Scotsman powering into Melton Railway Station on Saturday morning.
Onlookers watched from the platforms and on Burton Bridge as the iconic steam train arrived shortly after 10.30am.
Paul Davies, who photographed the train as it made its way near Wyfordby, said: “I’ve seen the Flying Scotsman a few times over the years.
“It’s quite simply a crowd pleaser and it’s an icon of British engineering, even though little of the original is left.
“As it passed by me, it looked magnificent.”
For Brian Slinger, the sight of the steam train passing the bottom of Sawgate Lane near Stapleford brought back happy memories.
He said: “As a child growing up when steam trains were the norm,it took me back to the days when I stood on other bridges, drinking in the smells and sounds of steam locomotives.
“To see such an iconic train so close, and passing quite slowly was a real thrill.
“It gave me another opportunity to appreciate the colours and craftsmanship of how it has been restored to his former glory.”
Paul, Brian and other readers have been sending us their spectacular photographs as the steam train made its way through the borough.
Here is a selection of some of those images as the train came to Melton from London King’s Cross en route to York.
The train has been restored at a cost of £4.2 million in recent years after first taking to the tracks in 1923.
