Here's when the Flying Scotsman's in Wellingborough, East Northants, Kettering, Corby and Rutland this weekend
Thousands of steam fans are expected to try to catch a glimpse of the Flying Scotsman as it steams through the county on Saturday, June 30.
The locomotive is passing through Northamptonshire along the Midland Mainline and the Midland Railway Nottingham direct line in the morning as part of its Yorkshireman tour.
If you were hoping to get tickets - and it’s an eyewatering £798 for a premier family ticket - then you’re out of luck as the route is a sell-out.
But you can see the train as it passes through Northamptonshire in the morning.
Spectators are being warned not to trespass on railway property or on to the tracks. British Transport Police have prosecuted trespassers in the past during previous events.
Here are all the details. Remember that all these times are subject to change and there have sometimes been long delays when the service has run in the past.
