The location will be signposted from all main roads coming into the town.
Chamber chairman Steve Robbins said: “We are delighted to be able to help with this event, visitors will be coming from all over the country to see Flying Scotsman and this is tremendous for the town.“We are very fortunate to have such a successful tourist attraction in the SVR which contributes greatly to our local economy, and we are very keen to support it.“The steam railway is very special to me personally.
My very first voluntary job as a teenager was cleaning the engines before they were shunted out to pull trains.“I’m sure there are many others who have equally fond memories, and who will be looking forward to seeing the Pacific class locomotives in full steam.”Just a handful of tickets remain for the arrival of the Flying Scotsman and the Tornado.
After the first 7,000 tickets sold out in one day, the last 500 tickets went on sale last week.
Lewis Maddox, the SVR’s Events and Footplate Experience co-ordinator said: “The re-allocation of some tickets to ride behind Flying Scotsman has allowed us to re-open bookings.“We are extremely excited about the event, and the countdown to welcoming Flying Scotsman to the Severn Valley Railway has certainly started.”A special, VIP day, featuring Flying Scotsman and organised by the Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust, will also be held on September 21.
