Flying Scotsman

Scotsman on the tracks

See Flying Scotsman in action throughout 2017 and beyond as it hauls special tours across the UK.

The last Flying Scotsman trips of 2017 will go ahead on Saturday 11 November. We wish to thank the staff and volunteers at Nene Valley Railway for their invaluable support.

While we understand interest in Flying Scotsman will be extremely high, we urge those wishing to view it on its tour dates do so from a safe vantage point. It is vital that spectators do not venture onto the railway, particularly when it is on the mainline as a full timetable of regular services will also be running.
