A celebrity steam train with Royal connections passed through Melton on Saturday.
Mark Naylor captured this stunning drone image of the LMS locomotive number 6233 Duchess of Sutherland chugging past Frisby Lakes.
The steam-hauled charter train had the distinction, in 2002, of being the first preserved steam locomotive to haul the Royal Train for 35 years, taking Queen Elizabeth II on a tour to North Wales, from Holyhead to Llandudno Junction.
It was en route from London and stopped at Melton railway station to pick up passengers before heading off towards its destination of York.
Paul Davies took this striking photo of the train as it made its way through Rutland, between Langham and Ashwell.
