A volunteer at work (above) on the legendary Flying Scotsman, which is being restored to its original condition (left) under the supervision of a new owner, businessman Dr Tony Marchington. The project - carried out by volunteer enthusiasts - will take another two years to complete, but the locomotive - designed by Sir Nigel Gresley and built in 1923 - should be back on the rails in 1998.
