GALLERY: Meeting of icons as Flying Scotsman passes over Forth Bridge on trip to Inverness

With a cloud of steam billowing from one of the world’s most famous funnels, the iconic Flying Scotsman thundered across the Forth Bridge this afternoon on its trip north to Inverness.

The steam engine arrived in Edinburgh yesterday having made the trip up from York as part of a series of excursions north of the border.

After its stop in the Highlands, three further trips with the Flying Scotsman are being run by the Scottish Rail Preservation Society on Sunday May 19.

The journeys will take in the Fife Circle, leaving Inverkeithing for Dalgety Bay, Burntisland, Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes, Dunfermline, Culross, Alloa, Stirling, Falkirk and Linlithgow before returning via the Forth Bridge.

Eager trainspotters have been warned to stay off the tracks when trying to catch a glimpse of the train.

Earlier today, it was revealed that video cameras had been installed on the locomotive in a bid to catch trespassers.

On Sunday, 56 regular passenger trains were delayed by trespassers as the locomotive travelled across the East Midlands.

Built in 1923 and saved from scrapping in the 1960s, the Flying Scotsman operated trips between Edinburgh and London non-stop.

It was the first steam locomotive to top 100mph, and is now owned and preserved by the National Railway Museum.
