The crowds turned out at Worthing Railway Station to watch a classic steam train in full glory this morning.

The Battle of Britain Class Pacific 34067 Tangmere steam engine is making its way around the south as part of a special Christmas journey.

The iconic engine is making its way from Three Bridges to Bath

The iconic locomotive departed from Three Bridges this morning, Saturday, December 5, heading south along the Brighton Mainline.

It stopped to pick up passengers at Haywards Heath and Preston Park, Hove and Worthing and is now heading onto Salisbury where it will briefly stop.

The 34067 Tangmere will then head through the rambling Wiltshire countryside and finally stop in Bath in time for the city’s famous Christmas Market.
