The London North Eastern Railway Company is where the ‘Scarborough Spa Express’ originated. In 1927 the LNER inaugurated ‘The Scarborough Flier’ running from London Kings Cross to Scarborough and Whitby. This popular train with families continued until 1939 when many trains like this were suspended because of the war. It wasn’t until 1950 when the train was re-introduced as a ‘Summer Only’ express and became known as ‘The Scarborough Flyer’. Due to falling passenger numbers the train ceased to run after 1963. 1981 saw the first ‘The Scarborough Spa Express’ service running to celebrate the opening of the famous spa building. These trains only continued to run till 1985 due to low passenger figures.
It wasn’t until 2007 that ‘The Scarborough Spa Express’ came back to life with services once again running to the famous Yorkshire coast.
