Steam Special
round the

FORTH CIRCLE

featuring Scotland's latest World Heritage Site, The Forth Bridge

Steam-hauled by A3 Class 60103 Flying Scotsman

Sunday 19th May 2019

SRPS Railtours Forth Circle steam special on Forth Bridge
Travel on a steam train over the most famous railway bridge in the world.
Three special excursions cross the World Heritage designated Forth Bridge to Fife and travel along the north shore of the Firth of Forth through Aberdour, Burntisland and Kinghorn to Kirkcaldy, with magnificent views across the Forth to Edinburgh and the Lothians. Each train continues through Dunfermline and along the coast through Culross and Kincardine then over line through Clackmannan and Alloa to Stirling with views of the Ochil Hills and the Wallace Monument. If time permits there will be a short stop for photographs at Stirling, then the train continues through Falkirk to complete the Forth Circle.

You can select from three trips; choose either the morning train from Linlithgow, the afternoon train from Dalmeny or the evening train from Inverkeithing. Breakfast will be available on the first train, lunch on the second and dinner on the third.
Any passengers booking to travel on more than one trip can remain on the train between trips. Please phone for further information about this.

A3 Class No. 60103 Flying Scotsman was built in 1923 for the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER) at Doncaster Works to a design of Nigel Gresley and hauled long-distance expresses on the East Coast Main Line. The locomotive set two world records for steam traction, becoming the first steam locomotive to be officially authenticated at reaching 100 miles per hour and setting a record for the longest non-stop run by a steam locomotive when it ran 422 miles in 1989 while in Australia. After withdrawal by British Rail in 1963 Flying Scotsman has gained considerable fame in preservation under the ownership of, successively, Alan Pegler, Sir William McAlpine, Tony Marchington, and now the National Railway Museum.
