About the event
For this tour we return Alycidon to the home turf of her latter days as a British Rail locomotive as we head for historic York and seaside Scarborough.Late spring means flowers in bloom and hopefully blue skies as we travel north via the East Coast Main Line via Doncaster to York, with our return being via the Great Northern & Great Eastern Joint Line through Gainsborough and past Lincoln Cathedral, then on through the broad Lincolnshire landscapes. We take the little-used Sleaford Avoiding Line and pass the ‘flower capital’ of Spalding.
