We are pleased to announce that Flying Scotsman will return to the Nene Valley Railway in September for public running. The locomotive will be in public service on 29th and 30th September and 1st October, and tickets must be purchased in advance for a trip behind this iconic locomotive. Our Popular Jolly Fisherman Fish and Chips service will also be operating hauled by the locomotive. The locomotive appears with kind thanks to the National Railway Museum and Riley & Son (E) as a thank you for the assistance the NVR provided in October with repairs to the locomotive. We are currently planning the visit and all details and updates will appear on our web page.
