The Fly­ing Scots­man re­turns home

The Scotsman - - Around Scotland -

The Fly­ing Scots­man will make a his­toric re­turn to Scot­land this year, but tick­ets cost up to £1,000 – and part of the jour­ney will be fuel-pow­ered, not steam.

First class tick­ets are up to £999, while pre­mium pas­sen­gers will pay £699 each.

The Fly­ing Scots­man was de­signed by Ed­in­burgh-born Sir Nigel Gres­ley to haul the same-named Ed­in­burgh-lon­don ex­press on the east coast main line. It was the first steam lo­co­mo­tive to reach 100mph, in 1934, and set a record for the long­est non-stop run of 422 miles in Aus­tralia in 1989.
