Tonight is just a quick look at a certain locomotive I went to see last weekend. The Flying Scotsman was hauling a lunch train from Salisbury to Southampton and back. I took my place on a bridge just outside of Southampton Central and waited for her to arrive soon with members of the general public who had come out to see the A3 legend. Waiting for over an hour in the pouring rain I discovered the general publics love for this locomotive can’t be underestimated. She turned up 10 minutes late due to trespassers up the line and trundled past, sadly for me at this point me and my camera were very waterlogged so my photo wasn’t very good. I plan to catch her again later in the year and hopefully the weather will be better.
Thanks for reading.
