A GREAT DAY TO BE AN AMERICAN:

Flying Scotsman: World famous steam locomotive makes glorious return (David Sim, February 25, 2016, IB Times)
   
Rail enthusiasts have lined the tracks from London to York to see the glorious return of one of the world's most famous trains. Shrouded in steam, the Flying Scotsman pulled out of King's Cross station at 7.40am with around 300 passengers.

The historic steam engine, which was retired from service in 1963, has been lovingly restored to her former glory in British Rail Brunswick green livery after a 10-year revamp costing £4.2m ($5.8m).
