The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway have announced that 46100 Royal Scot will be visiting the railway in June 2018.

This is all part of the railways 50th Anniversary celebrations which take place in 2018.

Visiting from Monday 25th June until Wednesday 27th June 2018, the steam locomotive will be hauling passenger trains up and down the 5-mile route from Keighley to Oxenhope.

46100 Royal Scot was built by the LMS in 1927 for their express services from London to Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow. Royal Scot was the first type of this breed of steam locomotives. 46100 was made famous when it toured North America in 1933. It was rebuilt in 1950 by British Railways to include modern modifications, though, was eventually retired in 1962 and was built on display at Butlins in Skegness.

Since then, she has had a major overhaul before returning to steam in 2015. She made her mainline debut in February 2016 when she hauled a railtour from Crewe to Holyhead.
