Rachel said: “We live nearby so we decided to wait to watch it pass.
“It’s not every day the most famous train the world passes your house.
“It was a little emotional. My granddad worked on Preston Station for decades and always talked about the big engines that came through.
“My grandma said he told her once they all had to stand to attention when they saw it come through – so it reminded me of him.”
