The Flying Scotsman

The visit of ex LNER A3 Pacific No. 60103 “Flying Scotsman” to the Bluebell Railway over August and early September 2022 has sadly been posponed due to the discovery of a a broken piston ring which had damaged the locomotive’s cylinder. Despite the best efforts of Riley & Son Engineering Ltd. who are custodians of the locomotive for the National Railway Museum and a team from the Bluebell Railway the the ring could not be replaced in time for her scheduled visit next month which this is in part due to global supply chain delays. So the visit of the worlds most famous steam locomotive to the Bluebell Railway will instead take place in 2023 during her 100th birthday celebrations.
