Four chances to watch steam trains running around London today – one leaving at lunchtime and three returning this evening.

Firstly, there is the VSOE Luncheon Excursion leaving Victoria Station at 12:30 and running via Clapham Junction (12:40), Barnes (12:47), Richmond (12:50), Twickenham (12:55) and heading out towards Guildford.

That same train then returns later this afternoon, coming in via Redhill (15:10), East Croydon (15:35), Selhurst (15:42), Streatham (15:56), Herne Hill (16:04) and finally back to Victoria at 16:12.

The locomotive is the 35028 Clan Line, built in 1948.

People in North London have two chances to watch trains – heading into Euston and Kings Cross.

Firstly there is the The Lindum Fayre, which will run into Kings Cross, via Finsbury Park (21:17) and arriving in Kings Cross at 21:24.

That locomotive is the Britannia Class Pacific 70013 Oliver Cromwell, built in 1951.

Then there is also the Cathedral Express, which arrives in Euston Station at 21:30, coming in via Watford Junction (21:08), Wembley Central (21:18) and Willesden Junction (21:21).

That train is the 70000 Britannia, also built in 1951.

Estimated route maps below – should be reasonably accurate unless the trains are doing something odd.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
