The Flying Scotsman will make its way along the Thameslink line this weekend so don't miss the opportunity to glimpse the famous locomotive with your own eyes.

The historic steam engine is travelling from Ealing to York and back on Saturday and is making a series of scheduled stops along the way.

But it will also be passing though dozens of stations including Hendon, Mill Hill Broadway, Elstree & Borehamwood, Radlett, St Albans, and Harpenden.

The journey, which is fully booked, will make a stop at St Albans City station to pick up some lucky passengers.

It's scheduled to leave west London at 6.20am and arrive in St Albans at 7.25am, so will pass through Barnet, Borehamwood, and Radlett between those times.

The schedule does not make clear exactly when the train will arrive at each station, and if you cannot make it in the morning or miss it, there will be an opportunity in the evening as the train returns to London.

It will be back in St Albans at 22:15pm on Saturday, before continuing on its journey to Ealing Broadway.

Network Rail and British Transport Police are urging spectators to stay safe and keep off the tracks as the engine rolls through the region.

Some photos have been shared on social media recently on trespassers on the track trying to catch a better view of the train. Trespassers can be fined up to £1,000.
