'Flying Scotsman' seen at Slateford pulling out onto the WCML from the Craiglockhart Connection with 1Z44 'Cathedrals Express' for Appleby, running on time after a late start from Waverley was recouped while awaiting the WCML path at Slateford. Out of sight at the rear of the train is 47746 'Chris Fudge' which provided more assistance in rear once the whole train was on the main line - hence the fairly rapid acceleration away towards Kingsknowe.
