Platform one is kept free for us.

0:55:040:55:07

So what's the problem? HE CHUCKLES

0:55:070:55:09

Maybe they've been waiting for the other train to depart it

0:55:090:55:12

before letting this one in normally,

0:55:120:55:14

so there's no crowd issue on the platform.

0:55:140:55:16

Oh, it's crowd issue, is it? I see.

0:55:160:55:18

Yeah, he's on his way out now.

Another chance to enjoy the view from the driving seat of the world's most famous steam locomotive as Flying Scotsman travels the length of the Severn Valley Railway.

Special 'cab cameras' and microphones capture all the action from the footplate - this time without commentary. Viewers can appreciate the evocative sound of steam transportation as this magnificent engine attracts crowds from far and wide.

Veteran driver Roger Norfolk and fireman Ryan Green guide Scotsman on the leisurely journey through the countryside of the English midlands, from Bridgnorth in Shropshire to Kidderminster in Worcestershire. Hundreds of enthusiasts also watch and wave from platforms, bridges and surrounding fields.
