Have your say

The Flying Scotsman is to return to Hampshire.

The operators of the famous steam locomotive have confirmed that it will run here on May 31 and on June 3 as part of its UK schedule.

It’s a return to the county for the Flying Scotsman, which ran sell-out trips in Hampshire in 2016 after returning to the tracks for the first time in 10 years after a refit.

Its tw-hour Hampshire trips will start and finish at Salisbury and follow a non-stop route through Romsey, Southampton and Eastleigh.
