It's one of the most magnificent sights in Yorkshire - today, the Flying Scotsman powered its way through the county once more.

After more than a year of work costing almost £23m, the famous Settle to Carlisle railway route is fully back in business, graced by the presence of a famous locomotive.

This Go Pro footage taken on board lends an insight into what it's like to be inside the engine room of the sizeable vehicle.

This morning, Flying Scotsman, courtesy of the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, set off from Oxenhope to North Yorkshire, carting ticket-holders of a sell-out special charter to the Cumbrian heartland.

Douglas Hodgins, chairman of the Friends of Settle Carlisle Line, said: “It is great to be back in business. We shall be working tirelessly with the railway industry to ensure the line regains its role as a through route to Carlisle and Scotland as quickly as possible – and to seeing the splendours of the Eden Gorge from the trains again.”
