Once again, we are hosting the most iconic steam locomotive, with the return of the Flying Scotsman. This celebrated locomotive will be the star attraction in an Easter weekend to celebrate steam’s golden age.

The Flying Scotsman famously became the first locomotive to travel at 100 miles per hour, and will be in operation between Good Friday (2 April) and Easter Tuesday (6 April) at the East Lancashire Railway.

Ticketholders for these special services will also be able to make unlimited journeys on the standard timetabled trains on the day of their visit.

In addition, there are also a limited number of tickets available to enjoy a dining experience, whilst being hauled by this historic locomotive.

Tickets are valid for one time return journey on Flying Scotsman.

Tickets for this event, and times of when the locomotive departs (click the PDF download), can be found on the link below.
