    Five of us at Queens saw the Scotsman & 45212 go through, everyone else was staring at the accident on the bridge & didn't notice it.

    My phone has kindly woken me up to tell me that Flying Scotsman is being dragged through Stafford this afternoon.

    It's due to stop at platform 6 at 1517 for 12 minutes for anyone interested. Screenshot_20181228-063124.png

    That would explain why we saw nothing when we walked down to Milford.

    I understand the Flying Scotsman will be coming through Colwich tomorrow morning.

    I'm afraid that's all I know - no timings I'm afraid - so if someone who's into those sort of things could confirm ....

    I think the train is being pulled from London to Crewe by an elderly electric loco - 86259 - the steam will be attached at Crewe, for the run to Holyhead and back.

    Colwich would seem to be somewhere around 8:50 to 9:00am, at a guess.
