The famous locomotive passed through Cheshire earlier today.

It was built in 1923 and described as “the world’s most famous steam locomotive” – but it was retired from regular service in 1963.

It was the first engine to reach 100mph when it breached the ton-up target in November 1924.

The National Railway Museum are the current owners.
