Train enthusiasts in East Cambridgeshire have been given the chance to enjoy a journey through the Fens aboard one of the world’s most famous steam trains.

The Flying Scotsman will be taking locals on a trip to Norwich, and will depart on Wednesday October 18 from Ely Rail Station.

The Cathedral Express will leave Ely at roughly 5.30pm and steam across the Fens to Norwich, where passengers will have an hour to explore before making the return journey.

Marcus Robertson, chairman of Steam Dreams, which organises day trips and holidays by steam with the Flying Scotsman, said: “This will be our first visit to East Anglia with Flying Scotsman, which promises to be a fantastic experience for those on board.”

Tickets are available in four classes, ranging from £79 to £205 per person. £205 Premium tickets will buy an evening meal with wine, whilst £79 tickets will buy seats at tables of four in open carriages with complimentary tea and coffee.
