In 2004, Flying Scotsman hit the headlines again with yet another crisis over its ownership. A campaign spearheaded by National Railway Museum to save the locomotive for the nation amassed the support of thousands, confirming its status as a national treasure.
Since 2006, Flying Scotsman has been undergoing an extensive restoration in the workshop of Riley & Son (E) Ltd. It has now completed last phases of the painstaking £4.2m project to bring the legend back to life, resplendent in its BR green livery in its guise as 60103.
On the 4th February 2016, Flying Scotman completed its mainline tests in order to get the go ahead to operate on the main lines after its re-build. This photo was taken at Hellifiled in The Yorkshire Dales after its final test run
