THE FLYING SCOTSMAN: This iconic train is to tour around the UK and here’s where to spot it

THE FLYING SCOTSMAN: This iconic train is to tour around the UK and here’s where to spot it

The famous flying Scotsman takes to the tracks and is due to visit Yorkshire this summer. You can take a ride or watch it pass by!

Flying Scotsman was built in Doncaster, the first locomotive of the newly formed London and North Eastern Railway (LNER). It left the works on 24 February 1923 with number 1472.

It was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley as part of the A1 class—the most powerful locomotives used by the LNER at that time.

Following the cancellation in 202o the Railway Museum have announced new rescheduled dates for this year to take a trip!

For Yorkshire folk, this steam train provides an opportunity for passengers from York, Leeds and the Aire Valley to travel over the spectacular Settle & Carlisle Railway, probably the most famous railway route in Britain!
