Clas­sic train steams back to In­ver­ness

Daily Record - - IAN BLACKFORD - BY PAUL RODGER

THE Fly­ing Scots­man will make a his­toric re­turn to Scot­land this year – but tick­ets will cost up to £1000 and part of the trip will be pow­ered by fuel not steam.

The lo­co­mo­tive will re­turn to In­ver­ness in May for only the sec­ond time in its 96-year his­tory.

First class pas­sen­gers will have to pay up to £999 for the ex­pe­ri­ence, which in­cludes cham­pagne, cakes and three nights in a four-star ho­tel in In­ver­ness.

Pre­mium pas­sen­gers, who will re­ceive free tea and cof­fee and be put up at a Hol­i­day Inn Ex­press, will pay £699 each.

The train pre­vi­ously vis­ited In­ver­ness in 2000.
