Flying Scotsman Comes Home / Steaming Back to Scarborough


Celebrating the most famous steam engine of them all as it takes pride of place in the National Railway Museum

Flying Scotsman Comes Home traces the history of the world’s most famous engine, from its manufacture to the threat over its future and the Railway Museum’s efforts to preserve it forever. As the Scotsman comes home to Yorkshire for “Railfest” – a weeklong festival marking 200 years of the locomotive – we follow the ups and downs in its prestigious and hard-working life.
