The Flying Scotsman

One of the most famous trains in the world steamed across the viaduct at the nearby Rutland village of Harringworth today. A large crowd had gathered to watch as it made it's journey from London to York.

Completed in 1878 and known as either the Harringworth Viaduct or the Seaton Viaduct, it is 1,275 yards (1.166 km) long. There are 82 arches, each of which has a 40 feet (12 m) span. It is the longest masonry viaduct across a valley in Britain and a Grade II listed building.
