Locomotion

You are here:

Get up close to world-famous Flying Scotsman as it goes on display at Locomotion this July as part of our Steam Season.

Taking a break from its busy touring schedule, Flying Scotsman will go on display inside our Collection Building—which is packed with many wonders of engineering—from 11 July until 1 August. On selected dates we'll put 60103 on outdoor display so you can fully appreciate its beauty.

From Friday 27 July Flying Scotsman will fire up for steam rides along our railway line, following the same route that the first coal-wagon-hauling steam locomotives used on the Stockton & Darlington Railway.

You will also be able to see the locomotive in light steam without the crowds during our evening access sessions, and if you're looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience you can book a ticket for a limited-edition footplate session.
