East Coast’s locomotive ‘Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’ returned to the rails this weekend after a makeover and re-dedication at Doncaster’s Wabtec engineering works.

The loco carries a specially-designed livery featuring the Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster and insignia of the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. Commemorative plates which mark the loco’s unique place in railway history have also been cleaned and refreshed.
