An iconic steam train will be travelling through Hertfordshire as part of a 170-mile journey across England.
You may think steam rail was consigned to the past, but there are still some locomotives around and operational – including a 45596 Bahamas locomotive trip which runs through Herts.
The Steam Dreams Rail Company runs dozens of trips across the UK and Europe to allow people to experience the romance of steam travel and transport themselves to a bygone era.
