Police Scotland has stated that investigations to determine the complete circumstances of the crash are currently ongoing. British Transport Police have also confirmed their collaboration with Police Scotland in this matter.
The recently restored Flying Scotsman was unveiled last year as part of a series of events commemorating its centenary.
This 97-tonne locomotive, originally manufactured in Doncaster in 1923, is presently under the ownership of the National Railway Museum in York.
Notably, it was the first steam locomotive in the UK to officially achieve a speed of 100mph and also made history as the first service to run non-stop from London to Edinburgh.
Although the National Railway Museum owns and operates the locomotive, it is maintained by Riley & Son (E) Ltd, located in Heywood, Greater Manchester. As part of its centenary celebrations, the locomotive is making appearances at various railway stations across the UK and has spent time at the National Railway Museum.
