The Mid-Norfolk Railway has announced that two more days have been added to the schedule for visits to see Flying Scotsman at Dereham station.
Tickets are now be available for Thursday 7 and 14 October. Tickets for Wednesday 6 and 13 October are now sold out. The tickets priced at £8 each give access to the station platform for a fifty minute slot and can be booked online on the Mid-Norfolk Railway website and (if still available on the day) at the station.
The slots start at 9am and the last slot is 4pm. Ticket holders can also purchase on the day, on a first come first served basis a ticket to visit the actual footplate and sit in the driver’s seat during their slot.
Charlie Robinson, Chairman of the Mid-Norfolk Railway said: “We knew the visit of this iconic steam engine was going to be popular but until you are directly involved with it, you do not fully realise what that means. We are therefore adding these two extra days as everything else has now been sold out and as such we want to make sure as many people as possible have the opportunity to see Flying Scotsman while it is with the Mid-Norfolk Railway”.
Platform tickets are being sold via the railways website at www.midnorfolkrailway.co.uk/flyingscotsman or if still available can be purchased on the day.
