Extra Scotsman trips with RTC

Although now in the middle of its busy summer season, the Railway Touring Company has taken an early opportunity to announce two extra excursions with Flying Scotsman in late autumn.

The first of these, ‘The Cotswold Venturer’, departs Paddington on Saturday, October 28 heading for Worcester via the Cotswold Line and Evesham.

LNER A3 Pacific No. 60103 Flying Scotsman stands at King’s Cross after arrival with the Railway Touring Company’s ‘Scarborough Flyer’ on June 24. This was the first time the A3 had hauled a train into King’s Cross since its return to steam last year. SEKINE EIKI

The second train, ‘The Yorkshireman’ starts from Ealing Broadway and makes for York via Kettering, Melton Mowbray and Loughborough.

This is a one way steam trip, the return train being diesel hauled.
