The Flying Scotsman takes its inaugural run this week after being lovingly restored for the nation. Inspired by this landmark occasion we have travelled the country to bring you our top 10 steam railway experiences.
After a £4.2m, 10 year restoration project under the watchful eye of the National Railway Museum, the great day is upon us. On Thursday 25 February the Flying Scotsman leaves Kings Cross station in London on an historic journey to York. This is followed by a number of showcase journeys around the country and a programme of events at York.
Inspired by this wonderful project, which brings to life an era of elegance, when train travel was a sheer joy, we present our top 10 alternative steam railway journeys.
