‘B1’ No. 61306 Mayflower crosses the Beauly Firth at Invershin while working a day tour from Inverness to Dunrobin Castle during Steam Dreams’ mammoth ‘Highlands and Islands’ tour of Scotland on May 9-17. 

The previous day, the Thompson 4-6-0 worked with No. 60103 Flying Scotsman over the Highland Main Line from Edinburgh. 


‘Scotsman’ worked north from King’s Cross to Edinburgh via the East Coast Main Line on May 9. 

During the tour, Mayflower also visited Kyle of Lochalsh and the West Highland Line before taking sole charge of the train for the long trip south to London Euston on May 15-17. 

Steam Dreams will be taking Flying Scotsman to Scotland again in July 2020. EDWARD DYER
