A WORLD-FAMOUS steam train is scheduled to make a stop in East Lothian this evening (Thursday).

The Flying Scotsman will be stopping just before Drem between 8.38pm and 9.17pm this evening.

It can also be seen passing through Dunbar Railway Station at 8.24pm.

The majestic train was originally built in Doncaster and was completed in February 1923. By the next year, it was named the Flying Scotsman, and was capable of doing the London to Edinburgh run without stopping at a single station.

After a long history that took it all over the world, the train went through a £4.2 million project to restore it and put it back on the tracks in 2016.

The famous train attracts a lot of attention, and though people are naturally keen to get the best view, they are encouraged to refer to Network Rail guidelines first.
