Crowds of people turned out to watch Flying Scotsman speed through the Melton area as the legendary locomotive made its way to York.
Over the past 10 years the passenger train has undergone a £4.2 million restoration and has finally returned to the tracks.
On Saturday the world-famous 1923-built steam train came through Melton, with the platforms at Melton Station packed with people waiting to see the train.
The engine was hauling the ‘Yorkshireman’ train which stopped at the station for about five minutes to take on passengers before continuing its journey.
Crowds also gathered at other vantage points, including Dalby Road bridge, to see the iconic engine chuff through Melton.
Other steam train enthusiasts managed to catch its journey on camera at various points including as the train passed through Brentingby, Wyfordby and Frisby.
Built in 1923, Flying Scotsman was the first locomotive built for the London and North Eastern Railway, making its first journey on February 24, 1923. It was given the name Flying Scotsman after its popular journey from London to Edinburgh, which started daily at 10am.
If you missed it on Saturday don’t panic - Flying Scotsman is back in the area on June 25.
