Tickets will not be available from ticket offices at the railway or any of its stations. People are being urged not to phone Nene Valley Railway to buy tickets, but to use the website.

The Flying Scotsman is coming to Peterborough as a thank you after repairs were carried out at Nene Valley Railway.

The engine was travelling through the city in October last year when it developed a fault. It was taken to Nene Valley Railway where a full inspection was carried out and repairs were made to axles. The train stayed at Nene Valley Railway for 10 days while the work was carried out.Tickets for one round trip on The Flying Scotsman will cost £25 for adults, or £13 for children (aged 3-13).
