I think the Flying Scotsman is coming through Stafford tomorrow.

It seems to be making an extended stop at Stafford in both directions (10:19 to 10:58 southbound and 19:05 to 19:35 northbound). Is it taking on water at Stafford?

This suggests the water stop is at Crewe.

Railcam have a camera at Crewe, well they have a few, but this 1 is free to watch. There's a good chance that you will be able to see the Flying Scotsman on it.

Not steam related as such but called into a real ale pub in Derby before going for a meal and it's full of old railway stuff including an old Red Star parcels sign
