On 15th April 2023 a unique tour took place in London.

Hastings unit 1001 visited 13 terminal stations in the capital.

It stated off at Liverpool St and worked its way round the capital.

I decided to see it on as many steam railways as possible but some of my plans got scuppered by steam.

In the morning there was a tour passing through my hometown of Reading being hauled by a Black 5, after being this I went into London and straight to Kings Cross, this was later followed by Euston, Marylebone, Paddington and Waterloo.

Thanks to another steam special I shot off to see it as a West Country was switching over with a Class 40, which shares a lot of its DNA with a Thumper

As I took so many photos I am having one page per location so click on the links for each page
