It’s all steam ahead at Nene Valley Railway today as the Flying Scotsman fills up for its first journey from Wansford to Peterborough…

Seats A5 and A6 taken on this once of a lifetime chance of riding behind the grand Lady herself.

There’s a Scott’s band playing with the bagpipes as a great send off. An area with memorabilia along with a few stalls too.

The carriages are old style so you’ll really feel like you’ve stepped back in tune. In fact a pat on the back for all the NVR staff who do a fantastic job of keeping this place and line alive.

There’s a chance to also buy a cover edition stamp of your day.

If you’re a passenger today you’ll definitely enjoy your ride and if you aren’t riding then give us a wave from the platform or roadside or bridge or field where we’ve already seen plenty of avid train spotters and photographers!

Although the Flying Scotsman won’t be here every week there really are some great train rides available for both a scenic ride but also for enjoying afternoon teas, fish & chips and of course Harry Potter and Halloween themed evenings.. you’ll find all their timetables an special’s details online at
