The iconic Flying Scotsman steam locomotive will once again cross southern England in September.

Although tickets for future trips are sold out, many will be delighted at the sight of the Flying Scotsman, described as the most famous steam locomotive in the world.

The routes for both trips have not yet been confirmed by the Railway Museum, so we cannot confirm whether the train will pass through Surrey.

The museum said this was not a full list of tour dates and additional trips are currently underway. Details will be posted on its website once confirmed.

The museum also urged those who wish to see the train on its tour dates to do so from a safe point of view.

He added that spectators should not venture onto the tracks, especially when it is on the main line, as a full schedule of regular services will also be in effect.

It follows previous incidents where people were seen next to the tracks taking pictures as the train approached.
