On Saturday 20th October 2012, we had a rare visitor on the Marston Vale Line. The Duchess of Sutherland steam locomotive stopped off at Ridgmont Station on its excursion from Nuneaton to Derby via London. As well as posing for the cameras. the Duchess took on water from a local fire truck, before setting off on its merry way.
Thankfully, our man on the ground Andy managed to take a few snaps as she sat in the Bedford platform for you to enjoy.
