Your chance to see the iconic Flying Scotsman steam through Stroud


The Flying Scotsman is set to pass through Stroud this weekend.

The famous steam locomotive is hauling the Cotswold Venturer from London to Worcester and back again on Saturday, February 19.

It last flew through Stroud in June 2021 as train enthusiasts gathered.

It is set to depart London Paddington at around 7.15am and head down the ex-Great Western Railway (GWR) mainline before joining the Cotswold Line at Wolvercote Junction.

The train will pass through Kingham and Moreton-in-Marsh, then through Campden Tunnel as it makes its way to Worcester Shrub Hill for 11.20 am.

Departure from Worcester is at 4.35 pm and the return journey is via a different route.

At Abbots Wood Junction the train will join the ex-Midland Railway route to Bristol. It will head south to Cheltenham, by-pass Gloucester, and join the Golden Valley route at Standish Junction.

It will then pass through Stroud and climb up the picturesque Stroud Valley to Sapperton Tunnel before continuing through Kemble.

Finally, the train will continue on to Swindon, joining the ex-Great Western Main Line and heading back to London Paddington for 8.30 pm.
