The locomotive left York at 9.30am on Sunday (August 22) and passed through Leeds, Shipley, Keighley and Skipton to pick up passengers before heading through Dales, joining the famous Settle and Carlisle railway.

There he traveled through some of the most impressive railways in the country, over the Ribblehead Viadict and providing incredible views of the Yorkshire Dales, including its three peaks of Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.

After finally arriving at Carlisle around 2pm, its passengers had around 90 minutes to explore before the engine returned to York, giving them the opportunity to witness the Dales in all their beauty once again.

Tickets for the trip generally cost more than £ 100, and the main class costs more than £ 300, but they often sell out.

The journey comes after the Flying Scotsman had spent about a month at Locomotion, at Shilden, near Darlington.

The locomotive is owned by the York-based National Railway Museum and is operated and maintained by Riley & Son (E) Ltd.
