Good evening,

Tonight we are looking at a rather interesting story that was in the newspapers recently about the worlds most famous train.The National Railway Museum asked people across four continents to name five trains or engines they had heard of and the Scotsman topped the poll. It came out just ahead of the Rajadhani Express – the pride of India’s network – the Orient Express and the Ghan, Australia’s 1,800-mile pan-continental service. The full top 25 can be found below and what surprised me the most was the ranking of the Hogwarts Express at number 25 I’d have placed money on her being in the top 10 following the huge success of the Harry Potter series.

1. Flying Scotsman
2. Rajadhani Express
3. Orient Express
4. The Ghan
5. Shatabdi Express
6. Amtrak
7. Indian Pacific
8. Mallard
9. Duronto Express
10. Bullet Train
11. Thomas the Tank Engine
