Flying Scotsman – Free Working Members Train!

Flying Scotsman with Headboard

I am pleased and delighted to announce that the Board have unanimously agreed to a proposal for the ELLRCo paid staff and ELRPS working members to join together in an evening celebration of achievements on the ELR. The railway continues to thrive and grow with dedicated staff and volunteers at its core.

The Working Members Train will run on Thursday 13th October leaving Bolton Street around 7pm. The train has capacity for 450. The cost of travel and a drinks reception will be free as a special thank you from the Board.

Seat Allocation

Clearly it’s not possible to accommodate all our staff and working members should they all wish to travel. To seek a fair balance, we will consult with Heads of Department on an allocation formula which is agreeable to all. This formula will be published on release of requests for applications. In addition, for those volunteers who will be rostered for this special train we are offering free seats for those wishing to ride behind the Scotsman on another service journey over that weekend.

More details will follow shortly.
