With regret we are compelled to inform you of the cancellation the ‘Wells Flyer’ on Saturday 15th September. We appreciate that this will be disappointing however the decision has been taken in the best interests of our passengers who have loyally supported us.

The reason for the cancellation is due to the closure of an important section of the route due to late notice engineering works. The team at the ELR have considered all options to make the tour work, but none of which delivered Flying Scotsman in steam from Bury to Holyhead. We would not have been able to offer you the value for money day out that you would expect from us.

The ELR team will be completing full refunds as quickly as possible. We are keen to operate this tour again in the future and when we have a confirmed date we will contact you with the tour details as a priority customer.

We would like to thank you for your understanding and support.
