Flying Scotsman Seaside Special (The Wells Flyer)

Dates for this event

  • 15th September 2018

Join us for a one-off fundraising trip along the North Wales Coast direct from Bury hauled by the WORLD FAMOUS 'Flying Scotsman'!

What better way to explore the North Wales Coast than a trip behind the WORLD FAMOUS 'Flying Scotsman'! 

To assist in raising funds for the purchase of 'City of Wells', the East Lancashire Railway will be running a one-off steam hauled excursion to North Wales. The train will be steam hauled throughout direct from Bury Bolton Street Station.

Calling to pick-up passengers at Heywood, Manchester, Newton-Le-Willows and Warrington, this train will make its way across the North Wales Coast to the Irish ferry port of Holyhead, where a two hour afternoon break is available to explore the old harbour town. 

Travellers also have the option to leave the train at Llandudno Junction to explore the seaside town of Llandudno where road coaches will be waiting to take travellers direct into the town for a four hour break.
