Ride Flying Scotsman to Rawtenstall

The People's Engine makes a hotly anticipated return to the East Lancashire Railway as she runs a series of passenger services throughout the year. Ride behind the legendary locomotive that was the first to exceed 100mph and for the longest time represented the very best of British industry.

Reserve your place in history (and bragging rights too) with a ride behind the world's most famous steam engine, 'Flying Scotsman', as she takes to the tracks for a series of passenger services through the picturesque Irwell Valley.

Your ticket entitles you to a return trip on the iconic engine, as well as unlimited travel on other ELR train services running on the day!
