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.
