Commuters in Preston got a surprise on their Wednesday morning journey as a steam train pulled up alongside them.

What appears to be an L&Y Aspinall was being transported along Blackpool Road by the Morrisons in Ashton on Ribble.

One Blog Preston reader, Marty Hopkirk, snapped the engine as it got stuck in traffic.

It’s likely to have been taken away from the Ribble Steam Railway Museum on the Docks.
