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.
