In 2016, steam locomotive Flying Scotsman returned to mainline running following a prolonged period of overhaul since purchase by the National Railway Museum in 2004. Following contract award in October 2013, the final overhaul to deliver the locomotive to mainline running condition was undertaken, which is the subject of this presentation.
