Flying Scotsman update (click on headline for full information)

Flying Scotsman Update Yesterday, during the 'Flying Scotsman'-hauled service between York and Peterborough, a driving axle box bearing was found to be running warm. As a precautionary measure, Flying Scotsman is now at Nene Valley Railway, where it is undergoing an engineering inspection. Unfortunately, the trips from Norwich, scheduled for this weekend, will not now be able to go ahead. However, we can confirm that, thanks to the efforts of our train operator, West Coast Railways, along with Network Rail, Riley & Sons Engineering and tour operator Steam Dreams, the trips are in the process of being re-arranged for Saturday 11 November, instead of being cancelled. They will run to the same schedule and timings, subject to final confirmation from Network Rail. Passengers should contact Steam Dreams for further information: info@steamdreams.co.uk / 01483 209 888.
