Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email The iconic Flying Scotsman made an unexpected return to the East Coast Mainline this afternoon, giving people a rare chance to capture the steam engine in all its glory. Initially scheduled to stop in Retford for about 15 minutes – according to the UKsteaminfo website – the locomotive instead had an extended stay at Ranskill before steaming straight through platform one at Retford Railway Station. Clouds of steam billowed from its chimney as it passed through the station, and it was out of sight within about 30 seconds.
The full tour dates and booking details for the Flying Scotsman’s tours are listed below. The train is globally renowned. It has broken two world records and reaches a top speed of mph.

The steam engine is being restored to its previous glory after being bought by the National Railway Museum in following a massive public appeal. The strong team has spent five years working on it and hope to complete the project within six weeks. The distinctive vehicle will then be tested on the East Lancashire Railway for people across Bury to admire. Colin Green, work foreman, said: Leading a team of men through the work has been brilliant.
Staff at the firm in Baron Street were tasked with overhauling the A3 boiler. So much work was needed that they had to almost completely rebuild the boiler, using some of the original parts. It was given a new firebox with a copper inner skin and the rivets were replaced. The steam tubes have also been replaced. Work has almost been completed and the Flying Scotsman was unveiled in York two weeks ago to donors who supported the fundraising appeal.
And last week it arrived in Bury so the staff can make sure it is in full working order. We have to do all the tests and commissioning, so we will run it on the East Lancs Railway to make sure it is all working.

The mere 25 short words slipped in to an article and not on the public notices where you you might expect does not begin to do justice to the scale of the devastation I feel this would cause to the local area. The current quarry which has a relatively small footprint would be extended to an area about a kilometre in length, and would extend west from Caldercruix to Annieshill and south to within touching distance of the Lilly Loch. Allowing this development would not only mean an increase in road traffic and air pollution to those in the surrounding area, but it would discourage walking and is contrary to local and national government initiatives encouraging people to access the outdoors and exercise as the high ground above Caldercruix is regularly used by walkers, myself included.
It also has serious long term environmental consequences to flora and fauna and to the stability of the ground near the Lilly Loch due to the large geological fault line which already exists there, which poses a risk to the safety of the members of the public accessing land. Furthermore there is little or no prospect of job availability or creation in the local community or any other economic benefit. Instead residents will have to endure all the negative effects of this proposal with no gain whatsoever, and will eventually be left with a hole in the ground which will either be fenced off or filled with rubbish, which seems to be the two main ways of using former quarries in North Lanarkshire.
I would encourage anyone in Caldercruix and Plains, which will also be affected by increased traffic and pollution, to make their feelings known to their elected representatives and more importantly to put their comments to North Lanarkshire Planning using the planning application number.

This is Flying Scotsman, icon of the age of steam, star of the British Empire Exhibition of and , and of countless childhood memories. This is the steam locomotive that, on 30 November , on a downhill stretch between Little Bytham and Essendine in Lincolnshire, became the first to hit a properly authenticated speed of mph, passing into legend and making heroes of driver, Bill Sparshatt, and fireman, Bob Webster. Driver Bill Sparshatt and fireman Bob Webster, on 30 November , the day the Scotsman recorded a speed of mph And on Wednesday, if all goes to plan, Flying Scotsman — in its heyday, the star of the London-to-Edinburgh train service — will once more be under her own steam, making her first low-speed test runs, along the East Lancashire heritage railway.
A nationwide mainline and heritage railway tour will follow, starting with Flying Scotsman hauling carriages of passengers along the North Yorkshire Moors Railway in March. It was a job that expanded out of all proportion. The right cylinder was cracked. The main steam pipe for the brakes had failed …. Mr Holroyd, 51, says that the job is partly why he has grey hair. But then, over the past half-century, Flying Scotsman has often had rather a rough ride.

But that was not enough for British Rail to consider her worth preserving.
No True Scotsman
Defence and special forces sources have told The Scotsman that such is the demand from private military companies in Britain and the United States who are operating in Iraq for former Special Air Service and Special Boat Service soldiers that, between May and December , between 40 and 60 men are expected to have sought premature voluntary release, or PVR, from the army and Royal Marines. In operational terms, this could mean that this year, the equivalent of one entire special forces squadron out of a total of six in the SAS and SBS is on its way to seek its fortune in the new Iraq.
To leave his unit, any member of the British armed forces can request a PVR from his commanding officer, although the request can be turned down and the move blocked. Combined with the PVR requests, this could leave the Hereford-based 22 Special Air Service Regiment potentially depleted by nearly a quarter of its strength. Less than 20 men a year pass out into the regiment. This latest development puts pressure on the current commanding officer of 22 SAS, a decorated lieutenant colonel from the Irish Guards, either to lower the standards for entry to the unit or allow younger, less experienced soldiers to apply.
THE Flying Scotsman will steam into Warrington as part of a fundraising trip to the North Wales coast. To assist in raising funds for the purchase of ‘City of Wells’, the East Lancashire Railway.

The return train is diesel hauled. The three tours are part of a series of eight to compliment 11 running in May. A previous Flying Scotsman tour booked to travel through East Anglia was cancelled because of fears the huge interest in the engine would prompt people to trespass on the railway to catch a glimpse of it, as happened on its first run after overhaul between London and York.

Scotsman group seeks new headquarters as Rockstar prepares to move into Barclay House By Colin Donald Johnston Press and the Scotsman Publications are to quit their shared home at Barclay House in Edinburgh’s Holyrood Road next year, to be replaced as tenants by the world-leading Scottish video games maker Rockstar North. It is understood that the plc and the Scotsman group, whose titles include The Scotsman, Scotland on Sunday and the Evening News, have yet to find new headquarters in the capital.
Industry sources expect Rockstar to sign the new lease agreement with the building’s Irish owner Lochlann Quinn before Christmas. It is understood that Edinburgh’s CDA, the architect’s firm which designed the original building, has been commissioned to adapt it from a modern, open-plan newspaper office into a creative hub for the games giant, currently based in Leith Street in the capital.

It was my first time at one of their meetings and with eight speakers given 10 minutes each over a two hour time slot, it was more akin to political speed dating than an in depth exploration of ideas. The discussion was supposed to be on Independence, Corbyn and the Future, and on two of those it hit the mark. Former SNP MP George Kerevan appeared to be on fast forward for his 10 minutes trying to pack so much in to so little time; so much so that it became difficult to follow.
In broad brush strokes he felt that the SNP had retracted from the Yes movement and had focussed too much on its parliamentary profile, to the detriment of both Yes and the SNP. He said that he accepted that the SNP had suffered a setback in the election with the loss of so many seats, with the loss of votes being attributed to people moving to Corbyn Labour. Had there been no such split, with an effective campaign the SNP could have retained that, and Labours vaunted magnificent seven would have been a less impressive six.
Rory seemed to be of the opinion that the radical left should shift to backing Corbyn, to put the short term aim of getting the Tories out over independence. I did make a contribution which related to this in the discussion; that grabbing the short term achievable aim of putting Corbyn in power only gave us a potential stay of five years on being gifted another Tory government. Pete in fact mentioned that he was surprised to see that there was little acknowledgment of the concept of British Nationalism in UK discussion, nationalism of course being a quirky Scottish thing.
He should know by now that Britons are of course patriots, not nationalists… Hilary Horrocks of the Edinburgh TUC spoke for time about the Grenfell Tower fire and how the TUC was putting members of the community in touch with help from the Trade Unions to help with a number of housing and community issues: She made the point that Tory ideology is that social housing is a short term solution, not a long term one, demonstrated by the selling off of council housing stock and not replacing it with similar levels of new housing.
Peter McCall of the Greens spoke about how across many parties there was an acceptance of capitalism but also a broad agreement that certain areas should be excluded from free market exploitation and influence: Had there been time I would have added a further point, that there was an element who neither understood it or wanted to control it but actively deterred it.
