The photos, which were taken by Peter Sumner, show the BR 4-6-2 'Merchant Navy' Class No. 35028 Clan Line.

The photos show The Belmond British Pullman which went on to travel between London Victoria and Stratford stations on a rail tour on October 9.

Peter believes this is only the second time that the set of Venice Simplon Orient Express coaches have come through the area on a rail tour.
