Description

The charm of the legendary, 1923-built Flying Scotsman awaits on this delightful weekend break!  Come and join us for an unforgettable journey in the company of the nation’s favourite steam train, weaving through idyllic panoramas and quaint villages of the Irwell Valley. Running on the heritage East Lancashire Railway in September, this is the perfect chance to experience the sights and sounds of steam travel!

Coach Itinerary

Day 1

From a morning pickup in your local area we travel by coach to our hotel, arriving in time for dinner.

Following breakfast at the hotel, we head to Bury where we board our train behind the magnificent locomotive, the Flying Scotsman, for a picturesque steam-hauled round trip journey on the East Lancashire Railway. With a journey time of approximately 75 minutes, we travel to the charming town of Rawtenstall through beautiful rural panoramas and picture-postcard villages, passing over viaducts and through tunnels before arriving back in Bury. In the afternoon we board the coach and head for home.
