Crowds gathered on platforms at Worthing railway stations today to watch a 90-year-old steam train pass through.

The Royal Scot locomotive travelled from London Victoria to Bognor Regis this morning, with Worthing residents out in force to catch a glimpse of history.

Reporter Michael Drummond caught the moment the majestic steam train passed through West Worthing station on video (above).

Heading south down the main line to Brighton – the route of the famous Brighton Belle – the train made stops at Haywards Heath and Preston Park.

Making its way along the coastal rail line, the locomotive also stopped at Shoreham, Worthing and West Worthing among other stations before arriving at Bognor Regis.
