A 33-year-old man has become the youngest steam train driver to qualify on a mainline service in almost half a century.
Jim Clarke made his first journey as a qualified steam train driver on Saturday by taking the controls of the iconic Belmond British Pullman from London Victoria to Guildford.
ITV News reports that he is the youngest person to achieve the qualification since 1968.
Dozens of passengers were on board the Belmond British Pullman as Clarke made his first trip.
Before qualifying, Mr Clarke told the BBC: "A good few years of work has gone into it.
"Before, you have to be passed out as a fireman, work your time, be put forward for driving, go through the training and then hopefully today pass the driver's exam."
His father said: "We are very proud of him. It's something he's always wanted to do."
"It's quite satisfying if you've had a good run."
