In a flurry of smoke, it was a case of blink-and-you'll-miss-it, but luckily quick-thinking members of the public managed to grab photos of the wonderful moment.

Passengers could be seen on boards breakfasting at their tables, with some waving at those who came to watch from the train station platforms.

The Scotsman will be coming back through the city at around 9pm this evening on its return journey to York after reaching Carlisle at lunchtime.
