New date for Flying Scotsman


The Flying Scotsman’s visit through Stroud has been rescheduled for next month.

The famous locomotive had been due to bring daytrippers through Stroud on February 19th, but the trip was cancelled after heavy rain and strong winds brought by Storm Eunice caused disruption on railways across the country.

Tour operator The Railway Touring Company has now updated its website to say the Scotsman will be making the journey on Saturday, March 5.

The locomotive will be pulling steam train The Cotswold Venturer and is due to set out from Paddington Station in London at 7.15am.

Passengers will enjoy scenic views through Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds before spending a few hours exploring historic Worcester.

The return journey will be different, taking passengers through Cheltenham and the Stroud Valley before joining the ex-Great Western Main Line on the way back to London.

The Flying Scotsman was built in 1923 at Doncaster Works, the first locomotive of the newly-formed London and North Eastern Railway (LNER)
