Whether you’re an avid train spotter or not, it’s hard to deny that there’s something magnificent about seeing a historic locomotive in the flesh.

And a beautiful one will be in Bristol later today, stopping off at Temple Meads for over three hours so we can all get a good look at it.

The Cathedrals Express has already left London Victoria and is now on its way to Bristol.

It will arrive at platform 12 of Temple Meads at 1.39pm before departing at 4.38pm.

On its journey to Bristol it will also stop off at Wiltshire towns Warminster and Westbury and then Bath, before arriving here.

After leaving Bristol for the return leg of the journey it is expected to arrive back at London Victoria at 9.16pm.
