Then A 50-year Southern Region ‘Then and Now’ with a difference. Alan Pegler’s preserved ‘A3’ No. 4472 Flying Scotsman sweeps round the curve on the east side of Farnborough station, hauling the Gainsborough Model Railway Society’s appropriately titled ‘Farnborough Flyer’ for the air show on September 10 1966.

This time, it’s working the ‘Cathedrals Express’ from Salisbury to London Victoria for Steam Dreams, on May 31 this year.
