It was due to be the day when Flying Scotsman mania reached Rugby.

The iconic and newly-restored locomotive was due to be heading our way today, Wednesday, as part of the Emerald Isles Express holiday run by Steam Dreams.

But in a late change to the schedule, Flying Scotsman only took over at Crewe with a diesel in charge until then.

Steam Dreams said they were only told of the need for a change a few days ago.
