The famous Mayflower train will be hosting a day trip through Eastern England on Saturday, August 28 – just a week after it passes through the county this weekend.

You’ll be making stops at Witham, Colchester, Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, and Ely for a journey to Lincoln.

David Buck, Steam Dreams Chairman and owner of B1 Mayflower, said: ‘‘Having spent many an hour in my youth watching the steam trains pass through Ipswich station, I’m delighted to be offering locals the chance to join us on this full day out to Lincoln.”
