Tickets for Nene Valley Railway Flying Scotsman trips to go back on sale

Tickets for the Nene Valley Railway Flying Scotsman trips in September will go back on sale at 10am on Monday, June 4.

Organisers of the trips said the ticket buying system system has been overhauled and a new website and ticket provider had been commissioned to cope with the demand.

"The Railway would like to remind those who were lucky enough to get tickets in the first tranche that these are still valid," said organisers.

Flying Scotsman was originally built in Doncaster for the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER), emerging from the works on 24 February 1923 and initially numbered 1472.

It was designed by Sir Nigel Gresley as part of the A1 class – the most powerful locomotives used by the railway.

By 1924, when it was selected to appear at the British Empire Exhibition in London, the loco had been renumbered 4472 – and been given the name ‘Flying Scotsman’ after the London to Edinburgh rail service which started daily at 10am in 1862.
