Flying Scotsman train won't now pass through Burnham area

One of the world’s most iconic railway locomotives won't be roaring through the Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge area next weekend as hoped.

The Flying Scotsman is running again following a 10-year restoration project that has cost £4.2m.

It was due to travel through Highbridge and Burnham Railway Station on Saturday May 28th during a special trip from Bristol to Taunton.

However, due to engineering work that day the trip has been been cancelled with a different route chosen instead.

The Scotsman, owned by York’s National Railway Museum, was relaunched in January, having been refurbished during a painstaking refurburishment project.

Painted in its wartime black livery, the locomotive has been brought back to life after the National Railway Museum bought it for £2.3 million in 2004 before work got under way in 2006.
