A steam engine tore through Royston railway station on Sunday morning to the delight of those eagerly waiting for a glimpse on the platform.
As part of the Easterling rail tour the LNER B1 Mayflower 61306 made a round trip between London King’s Cross and Norfolk railway stations, including a voyage through Royston at about 10.40am.
Photographer David Hatton said: “It was a nice sight.
“There were several onlookers and children there to admire it coming through at full speed, perhaps at 50mph, and it was only a few minutes late!
“There were many carriages and I believe fare-paying passengers as well.
“I’m not a trainspotter, but it was very impressive indeed.”
