The A3 60103 “Flying Scotsman” was just one classic locomotive which took part in the National Railway Museum “Shed Bash” at Shildon from July 23rd until July 31st, 2016. She was joined by the A4 Pacific (60009) “Union of South Africa” and the V2 (4771) "Green Arrow”. The mini slide show above has 15 images of "Flying Scotsman" just after she had arrived at Shildon on Wednesday, July 20th.

Two views of the A3 60103 "Flying Scotsman" as she arrived at Locomotion - The National Railway Museum in Shildon on July 10th, 2018 for a special event which ran for three weeks.

The A3 60103 "Flying Scotsman" hauling "The Cathedrals Express" from York to Edinburgh on Saturday, May 19th, 2018. She is seen here at Tursdale Junction, just north of Ferryhill, in County Durham. She was initially scheduled to stop at Tursdale for about thirty minutes but, as she was running an hour late, she sped through at speed.

"Flying Scotsman" was certainly going at some speed here as she hauled "The Cathedrals Express" from York to Edinburgh on Saturday, May 13th, 2017. This was taken at Croft-on-Tees just outside of Darlington.

I never get sick and tired of seeing "Flying Scotsman" at speed. This was taken at Bradbury on Sunday, July 17th, 2016 about 8.45pm as she hauled "The Waverley" southbound to York.

Not as bright as she was at Bradbury a week earlier but good to see nevertheless. "Flying Scotsman" hauling "The Waverley" excursion northbound from York to Carlisle through Ferryhill on Sunday, July 11th 2016.

The sun was certainly shining bright at Bradbury, in County Durham, on the evening of Saturday, July 2nd, 2016 as the A3 (4-6-2) 60103 "Flying Scotsman" headed southbound.

Two more of "Flying Scotsman" at Bradbury on Saturday, July 2nd, 2016 as she hauled the "Railway Touring Company" excursion southbound to York.

The A3 (4-6-2) 60103 "Flying Scotsman" at Ferryhill in County Durham on Saturday, June 11th, 2016. She was hauling "The Tynesider" excursion from York to Newcastle and was seen southbound here on her return journey after stopping for thirty minutes. Steam enthusiasts had a wonderful opportunity to get a series of photographs.

Getting up a little bit of steam as she prepared to leave Ferryhill on her journey back to York.

This view of her was taken from the other side of the tracks when she first arrived in Ferryhill on her way down to Newcastle and passing through Durham. As mentioned earlier, because she did stay over for about 30 minutes, I had the chance to drive over the bridge and see her as she took on water. "The Tynesider" excursion ran from, and to, Cleethorpes, York, Newcastle, Bedlington and Morpeth.

The A3 60103 (4-6-2) "Flying Scotsman" hauling "The Cathedrals Express" southbound at Bradbury on the afternoon of Tuesday, May 17th, 2016.

Despite the "Flying Scotsman" times being withheld due to trespass risk I was fortunate enough to find out when she was heading north through Ferryhill, in County Durham, on Saturday, May 14th, 2016 en-route to Edinburgh. The two photographs directly above show the newly restored A3 (4-6-2) 60103 hauling "The Cathedrals Express" excursion on a trip to Scotland.
