Bluebell Railway are incredibly proud to have a rare visit from the worlds most famous steam locomotive ‘The Flying Scotsman’ – See below to book tickets.
As you would expect we have some exciting plans for this year’s visit – including running Flying Scotsman on regular services and special dining trains (details to follow later this month).
The Flying Scotsman will be running non-stop return services between Sheffield Park and East Grinstead for five days from 25 – 29 August. All seats must be pre-booked in advance.
Visitors will also be able to see the locomotive on static display at Sheffield Park from 17 – 24 August and 30 August – 5 September. Tickets for footplate viewings will be available.
The locomotive is currently being overhauled which started in April 2022, prior to the locomotive’s centenary celebrations in 2023. The visit to the Bluebell Railway will be one of the first chances to see the famous engine following the overhaul. As part of the overhaul, Riley & Son (E) Ltd will restore the locomotive to the same standard as the last overhaul in 2016, with work focusing on the boiler and the required retube and recertification. There will not be any changes to the locomotive’s livery, numbering or chimney configuration.
Please note: Whilst we try our best to display correct event information, we are not responsible for any event changes or cancellations.
So please visit Bluebell Railway’s website for latest information.
