THE Flying Scotsman has been travelling through Hampshire.

On Saturday, June 17, Britain’s most famous steam locomotive passed through the county as part of its centenary celebrations.

The 100-year-old train was pictured in parts of Andover, Basingstoke, Winchester and Romsey, as it travelled on its journey to the south coast city of Portsmouth and to Salisbury.

This year has marked 100 years of service of the Flying Scotsman, which was built in Doncaster in 1922.

The centenary journey through Hampshire was a landmark occasion and was completely sold out.

Prices ranged from the most expensive fare, a premier family ticket costing £1,045 to the cheapest standard junior ticket which cost £125.

Flying Scotsman fans and train enthusiasts tried to get a glimpse of the historic locomotive as she made her journey, with many capturing some brilliant pictures along the way, including this one from Brian Cartwright as she steamed through Andover.
