Milburns in Flying Scotsman deal

Milburns, the caterer at the National Railway Museum in York, is providing lunch and supper hampers on board the Flying Scotsman. The legendary steam train made its first public journey last week since the museum bought it for £2.2m in April.

More than 300 passengers out of a total of 454 had pre-ordered the £10 hampers to eat on the inaugural trip from York to Scarborough. Each hamper included a three-course light meal of four gourmet sandwiches, a smoked salmon and sour cream frittata, a fruit salad, and a quarter-bottle of wine.

The Flying Scotsman will make two trips a day on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, until 31 August.

Milburns has renewed its £2m-a-year contract at the National Railway Museum for another 10 years. Milburns, which was bought by Compass Group in 2001, has run the catering at the museum since 1991.
