Flying Scotsman

Flying Scotsman returns to the Nene Valley Railway in September for public running


Some Wheelchair Spaces remain - please call the office to discuss.


Sadly we have already seen people trying to re-sell Flying Scotsman tickets for profit on the likes of Ebay etc.  Therefore we would like to bring to everyone’s attention section 4 of our terms and conditions, specifically clause 4.4.  This clause explains that we will cancel any tickets found to be for sale (refunding the cost minus administrative charges of £5 per ticket) so anyone holding that ticket will be refused entry and they will be null and void.
