This trip takes you Bury where you can take advantage of the famous market. There are plenty of places to eat so that you are prepared for the afternoon section of the trip. The Flying Scotsman locomotive will haul you and your fellow passengers from Bury to Rawtenstall at 15:00.
This famous engine was built in 1923 and has since covered over 2.5 million miles. It has been refurbished several times to keep it in top condition and this is a rare opportunity to ride behind the iconic loco.
The coach leaves the Military Arms in Sandbach at 09:30
Tickets cost £37 and will be available from the U3A desk upstairs in Sandbach Library on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month between 9:30 and 11:30am.
