Find out all about the world's most famous locomotive.

Since returning to the tracks in 2016, Flying Scotsman has been hauling special passenger tours across the UK and making appearances at the National Railway Museum in York and Locomotion in Shildon.

Where is Flying Scotsman now?

Flying Scotsman is being prepared for its next tours. We are working on an updated list of tour dates, which will soon be published—find out about Flying Scotsman's planned trips on the Scotsman on the Tracks page, but please be aware these dates may be subject to change.

When will Flying Scotsman be at the National Railway Museum?

Scotsman was meant to go on display in the National Railway Museum's North Shed for three weeks from April 1 2020, but this was cancelled after the museum closed in response to coronavirus. As soon as we know when it can return to the museum, we'll share the information on our social media channels and update the content here.

When is Flying Scotsman next at Locomotion?

We can now confirm the date for the next Flying Scotsman event at Locomotion—it is planned for 25 July–19 August 2021. Keep an eye on the Locomotion website next summer for more information.
