TRAIN enthusiasts have a chance to see a steam locomotive in Herefordshire tomorrow (Saturday).

However, you will have to be up either early or late to see it.

The Sherwood Forester boards in Hereford at 5.55am for its long journey to Carlisle in Cumbria.

 The 45231 train was built in 1936 for the London, Midland & Scottish Railway.


Since then it has worked all over the country, from routes in Wales and Northern England in its working life, to heritage railways  in Southern England to the beautiful Mallaig line in Scotland, where Harry Potter was filmed.
