The Flying Scotsman

The Flying Scotsman, probably the most famous train to run the UK's rail network. The picture below was a slide which I recently bought and I was assigned copyright to during the purchase. 

The image shows the LNER Class A3 4472 Pacific Steam Locomotive passing a DMU passenger service at Chorlton, Manchester in 1964. The line they are passing on is no longer used as a railway, closing in 1964. The stretch of track is now part of the Manchester Metrolink Tram service which opened along this stretch in 2011.

The image can be seen best quality for a 55 year old image, without watermark on Clickasnap. The image can also be downloaded for just £1 there.
