THE iconic steam train Flying Scotsman is celebrating its centenary year in 2023 with lots of special activities planned.
And you can travel on board as part of a special rail break from just £149pp.
The 2-day experience is available from Just Go! Holidays, and you can choose from departures on March 12 or 18, 2023.
On day one you’ll get picked up by coach from your local area and dropped off in Bury where you’ll meet the rest of the group boarding the historic steam train.
There, you’ll board the Flying Scotsman for a scenic journey to Rawtenstall on the East Lancashire Railway before returning to Bury.
En route, you can look out onto the beautiful Lancashire countryside, pass over viaducts and through tunnels, with lots of photo opportunities.
