An iconic stream train the 4472 was captured by many railway enthusiasts but not many will have seen it from this angle.
Mike Birtles had his drone in position near the River Ribble to capture the smoke billowing from the engine as it approached Preston Railway Station.
The drone used is a Matrice200 fitted with a Zenmuse Z30 camera.
It shows the engine on its way into the station, passing over the railway bridges on the River Ribble.
