The iconic locomotive, Flying Scotsman, is set to return to the National Railway Museum, part of Lime Venue Portfolio, from October to January 2019. To mark the occasion and showcase the new themed corporate dinner package with drinks reception and Scottish-inspired cuisine, the museum is hosting an exclusive launch event on Wednesday 24 October.

Upon arrival, guests will be invited to sip Prosecco next to the Flying Scotsman and indulge in delicious themed canapés such as haggis bon bons and blue cheese tattie scones. Attendees will also be able to talk with the engine’s driver about its illustrious career and will receive a signed copy of The Flying Scotsman: Speed, Style, Service by Assistant Director at the National Railway Museum, Andrew McLean.

This will be followed by an authentic Scottish banquet in the beautiful Station Hall, surrounded by historic carriages and locomotives. Consisting of three courses, the menu will include:

  • Honey roast ham hock terrine, with a split pea puree, pickled quail’s egg and oat bread
  • Aberdeen Angus fillet steak, clapshot potato cake, confit baby neeps and carrots, Stornoway black pudding croquette with a Scotch whisky gravy
  • Cranachan, with buttery shortbread
