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 there was a great deal of interest in the Flying Scotsman and as a result it has been undergoing an extensive restoration and has been officially launched to the public again in 2016.

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. This popular locomotive has earned itself a generation of Scotsman fans.
