In 2023 we celebrated 100 years of Flying Scotsman with special events, heritage railway trips and museum fun—and what a spectacular year it was.

Our plans for 2024 are still in the works, but we'll have an update ready soon.

In the meantime, you can still enjoy the Flying Scotsman VR Experience and our exhibition Flying Scotsman: 100 Years, 100 Voices at the museum.

You can also keep in touch with the latest updates by signing up to the Flying Scotsman newsletter.
