See the legendary Flying Scotsman
2 days from only £99
The legendary Flying Scotsman is back on the rails after a £4.2 million refurbishment. Originally built in Doncaster, the Scotsman launched in 1923 and was one of the most powerful locomotives used on the Railway.
The Flying Scotsman continued to achieve a number of firsts throughout its early career, including the first locomotive to clock 100mph on a special test run. It also ran the first ever non-stop service from London to Edinburgh with a journey time of just eight hours.
During the Second World War the iconic green paint was repainted black, which was a common theme with all railway stock. It was retired from service in 1963 as steam engines were becoming old-fashioned.
Since 2006 the Flying Scotsman has been undergoing an extensive restoration and has been officially launched to the public again in 2016.
The Flying Scotsman will be touring the country in a number of different ways over the next year. There is an opportunity to ride the famous engine on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway between 12-20 March 2016 it will be in the National Railway Museum between 26 February and 7 March and then back again on 25 March until 8 May.
The Scotsman will also be journeying to Edinburgh and Wales whilst on its travels.
A mixture of coach packages are available for the Flying Scotsman, including coach travel, hotel stay and a ride on the fabulous Flying Scotsman or the opportunity to visit the Scotsman at the National Railway Museum.
