The worlds most famous locomotive will have a brief encounter with one of the most luxurious trains in 2019.
60103 Flying Scotsman will haul 7 of the 1930s style Pullman carriages of the Northern Belle on two excursions to Carnforth where the 1940s film was made.
The first “Spirit of Travel Lunch” trip will depart from Crewe at 11 am on Saturday, July 20th 2019. Then in the evening, there will be a “Gala Dinner” excursion from Manchester.
Passengers on board both trains will have time to dance to the train’s resident band on Carnforth station before sharing a kiss under the iconic station clock like Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson.
There will also be two Flying Scotsman-hauled round trips from London Victoria on Thursday, June 13.
Fares start at £325. For more details see northernbelle.co.uk or phone 01270 899681.
