and live on Freeview channel 276
On November 11 and 12, the famous Doncaster-built Flying Scotsman will be in the city to mark its 100th anniversary.
With the initial batch of tickets being sold out within hours of their release, the council is now offering a handful more in an online competition.
Those who like and share a post on the council’s X page will be entered into a draw to win a pair of tickets to the event.
Attendees will be able to see the locomotive up-close at the Railport terminal as well as step onto the footplate of the engine.
Flying Scotsman was built at LNER Doncaster in 1923.
It is now kept at and managed by the National Railway Museum in York.
Mayor Ros Jones lobbied for the upcoming visit after Doncaster was missed from a series of tours of the locomotive.
