Excitement is building at the Watercress Line as it gears up to welcome the record-breaking Flying Scotsman, the most famous steam locomotive in the world for the first time.
In February 2020, York’s National Railway Museum owned, exquisite 97-tonne A3 class locomotive will be visiting the Watercress Line and allowing visitors to travel behind her on 14th and 29th February, and 1st, 7th and 8th March 2020 with additional Flying Scotsman experiences available at other times.
Sit back and relax as you travel in style through the glorious Hampshire countryside, overlooking the South Downs National Park. Travel our ten mile line from Alresford to Alton station, and then return. Feel the thrill as Flying Scotsman conquers the 1 in 60 'over the Alps' climb to the summit at Medstead and Four Marks, in each direction.
During your journey look out for the delightful topiary hedges along the heritage platforms at Ropley and Medstead and Four Marks.
At Alresford Station, our West Country Buffet will be open for hot and cold food and drinks and the gift shop in the Old Goods Shed will be selling fabulous gifts.
