The same as last week, Gresley Pacific steam locomotive 60103 'The
Flying Scotsman' and its support coach are due to pass Chelford at about
16:30 on Tuesday (14th June) en-route between York and Crewe before
hauling 'The Emerald Express' excursion between Crewe and Holyhead the
following day.

To check if it is running and on its timing progress on the day use
realtimetrains website (select search/detailed/set locationAlderley
Edge(code ALD),time0000 -2359 and then ammend the date to 14/06/16 if
looking before the day -- click the search box, scan down to find the

If going to the station to watch the Scotsman go through then take care,
do not trespass off the platform, stay behind the yellow lines and be
aware that a northbound Pendolino is due to pass at speed just before it
is due.
