Flying Scotsman to cross famous railway viaduct as it steams through Northants

The Flying Scotsman will stop at Kettering railway station and then steam across Harringworth Viaduct

The famous Flying Scotsman will steam across Northants this weekend on route to York – following its £4.2 million restoration.

On Saturday, June 4 the 1923-built locomotive (No. 60103) will stop off at Kettering to collect passengers as it makes its way to the northern city.

But after visiting Kettering, the engine – which will be hauling the ‘Yorkshireman’ train – will then pass through Corby railway station.

It will steam across the famous Harringworth Viaduct, the longest masonry viaduct in Britain, where the H&P team will be capturing every moment.

This journey from London Victoria is one of a number of dates this year with the Flying Scotsman arranged by ‘Railway Touring Company’.

It will depart from London Victoria before going through St Albans, Luton, Bedford, Kettering and Melton Mowbray and then York.

The train is set to leave London at 6.35am, stop at Kettering train station at 9.40am and then pass over Harringworth Viaduct at around 10am.

After arriving in York at 2pm, it will then make the return journey at 5.10pm, and will steam back across the viaduct at around 8pm while pulled by a diesel locomotive.
