The Flying Scotsman returns to Bronte Country
Just over six years on from the success of its visit in 2017 the Flying Scotsman has returned to the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway for the weekend of King Charles' III coronation in May 2023.
The world famous steam locomotive is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and is engaged in a series of visits to various destinations up and down the country to mark the occasion. Resplendent in its British Rail olive green livery and bearing the number 60103, the Flying Scotsman (which was originally given the number 4472 when it was first named and took to the tracks in its lime green LNER livery back in 1923) is staying for most of the month of May 2023 at the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway here in Bronte Country.
Kicking off with the coronation weekend the Flying Scotsman will be on display with special rides, footplate visits and engine shed tours where members of the public can get up close to this iconic steam engine.
