Flying Scotsman steams into Bucks
CHECK out these fantastic photos of the Flying Scotsman taken as it thundered through Gerrards Cross railway station on Tuesday.
The world-famous steam train was on its way around a circular four-hour trip through the Chiltern Hills and train fans were ready and waiting to take photos.
After setting off from London Paddington, the 94-year-old locomotive made it way through the Chilterns before connecting to a new line at Bicester.
It then joined the Chiltern mainline heading towards Oxford, before it returned to the capital via the Thames Valley.
Despite the gloomy weather, enthusiasts were out in force to catch a glimpse of the train on its whistle-stop lunchtime tour through Bucks.
The train is set to head out on two more tours from London Paddington on Friday June 9, another lunchtime route and an evening one, but no exact timings have been published for when the steam engine would travel through each station in a bid to avoid overcrowding and trespassing.
It follows advice from Network Rail and British Transport Police (BTP), who warned anyone planning to see the train to be aware of the dangers of train tracks.
