The Flying Scotsman pulled into Wansford’s Nene Valley Railway yesterday and the lucky passengers with a ticket couldn’t have been more thrilled.

The iconic steam locomotive will be running there until Monday as a thanks Nene Valley Railway stepped into help when it suffered a fault and broke down at Peterborough last October.

Tickets for the special rides sold out almost immediately and the first lucky passengers to ride it were delighted to step on board yesterday.

This weekend, Nene Valley Railway is advising people who want to see the Flying Scotsman to view it at either Ferry Meadows or Orton Meres station, as there isn’t space at the Wansford station.

It also reminded spectators to avoid the trainline itself.
