Scotsman Returns

The East Lancashire Railway will see the return of Flying Scotsman from 13th - 16th October 2016 for our dedicated "Scotsman in Steam" event.

There is limited availability on early and late trains on Thursday 13 and Friday 14 October.

This will be the second opportunity for you to see this most famous of engines in all of her glory at the East Lancashire Railway following the test runs on the line back in January. Rather than the black undercoat, we are proud to welcome back Scotsman in her BR Bunswick Green livery!
