The Flying Scotsman is coming to Nene Valley Railway as part of a national tour.

The Peterborough attraction was chosen after it stepped in to help when the locomotive suffered mechanical issues in Peterborough last year.

Work was carried out on the axles at Nene Valley Railway, and the train stayed in Peterborough for ten days while the vital repairs were carried out.
