A historic locomotive is on track to visit Aberdeen multiple times this year.
No 60163 Tornado, affectionately known as The Aberdonian, rolled into the city in March following the restoration of a turntable.
Volunteers from the Ferryhill Railway Heritage Trust (FRHT) had tirelessly worked to restore the equipment, which dates back to 1906, and required £86,000 of funding.
The locomotive will be visiting the city on four separate occasions on August 1, 8 and 31 and again on September 7.
Andrew Meff from FRHT said: “It came here on March 14 for the completion of the turntable restoration and now these other trips have been chartered.
“It is great for us and great for the city after an important restoration.
“The work was the culmination of three years of efforts.”
The Tornado will travel from Edinburgh to Aberdeen and it is operated by the AI Steam Locomotive Trust.
North-east MSP Liam Kerr added: “This is fantastic news and a credit to the hard work and dedication of the volunteers at the FRHT.
“This will be a great attraction for visitors, local residents and railway enthusiasts alike.
“And I am sure people will turn out in good numbers to see this steam train over the summer.”
