The Flying Scotsman steam locomotive passed through Haddenham & Thame Parkway on the Chiltern Line on Tuesday 6th June, and its journey was witnessed by crowds of people who had gathered on local bridges and the station platform to observe this rare event.
Steam train enthusiasts braved the chilly wind to capture their photographs as well as video footage.
