Flying Scotsman passes through Hampshire en route to London

The Flying Scotsman has made its way through Hampshire, as part of its journey from Swanage in Dorset to London today.

The world-famous locomotive has been passing through towns and cities across the south of England.

It's been greeted by fans, commuters and some glorious sunshine in places including Romsey, Southampton, Andover, Basingstoke, Fleet and Farnborough.

Its journey began this morning in Swanage, which has been its home for the past three weeks at Corfe Castle station. 

Around 6,000 people came to visit the train during its stay, but now it's returning to London.

You can take a look at its route here.

Here's a video of the famous train arriving in Basingstoke earlier today.

Lots of people have greeted the train at various points of its journey, with platforms packed at Basingstoke station.

The train's staff have been greeting train enthusiasts along the way.
