The East Lancashire Railway (ELR) will play host to the most iconic steam engine in history - when Flying Scotsman returns to its tracks next spring.

The celebrated locomotive, which is owned by the National Railway Museum, will be the star attraction in an Easter weekend bonanza of steam's golden age on the heritage railway in Bury, Gtr Manchester. Cherished by steam enthusiasts for the pivotal roles it occupies in the history of British rail travel, Flying Scotsman famously became the first locomotive to officially travel at 100 miles per hour.

It will be in operation on the scenic 12-mile ELR line between Good Friday (April 2) and Easter Tuesday (April 6). The Easter dates will also be the first chance for the public to see the famous engine in 2021, following a period of winter maintenance. Ticket holders for these special services will also be able to make unlimited journeys on the standard timetabled trains on the day of their visit. In addition, there are a limited amount of tickets available to enjoy a dining service onboard this historic train.

Locomotive No. 60103, Flying Scotsman was built in 1923 by the LNER to haul express passenger services between London and Edinburgh and the locomotive quickly became a favourite with the travelling public. In 2004, the locomotive was saved for the nation and bought by the National Railway Museum with assistance from numerous organisations and the public. After a long and complex restoration in the workshop of Riley & Son (E) Ltd, the locomotive returned to the tracks in 2016 and now hauls passenger services across the country.
