Flying Scotsman 02

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.

If you would liked to have been present, but were unable to get along, you can re-live something of the excitement by visiting the Haddenham.net Facebook page, which you'll find here:

on Friday 9th June it will be passing through Haddenham once again, at approximately the same time as on Tuesday, viz: 13:53 hrs
