    The legendary A3 60103 “Flying Scotsman” will be making a hotly anticipated return to the East Lancashire Railway at the end of this week! Reserve your place in history (as well as bragging rights) with a ride behind the world’s most famous steam engine as she takes to the tracks for a series of passenger services.

    The 9 September will also see visitors get up close and personal with the engine, even getting the chance to climb aboard the footplate, at Scotsman on Show!

    Your ticket entitles you to a trip behind the Scotsman herself, as well as unlimited travel on all of the day’s other services, so you can easily turn your voyage into a full day out! Tickets start at £15 per Adult and £10 per child.
