TRAINSPOTTERS who waited over an hour to glimpse the Flying Scotsman were less than chuffed when an express train completely blocked it from view.
The hapless rail enthusiasts had gathered at a level crossing in Offord Cluny, Cambs to witness the iconic loco go past.
But they could only curse their luck when the high-speed Virgin service appeared and scotched any chance of seeing the steam engine.
Their priceless reaction was caught on camera.
One man says: “Oh bloody hell”, while another asks: “Can you believe this?”
Train enthusiast Graham Linay then took to Twitter to post his video along with the caption: "After waiting an hour for it to pass I see nothing to laugh at".
Since he posted it this weekend, the video has racked up thousands of views.
"British humour at its finest," one person commented.
Another wrote, "I'm grinning from ear to ear. Sorry mate."
Built in 1923, the Flying Scotsman was the first train to break the 100mph barrier in 1934.
It travelled between Edinburgh and London and in its heyday was considered the height of luxury.
It was retired from service in 1963 before being bought by the National Railway Museum in York for £2.3million.
They began a decade-long £4million restoration in 2006 – painting it in the traditional early 1960s British Rail green and giving it shiny new nameplates.
In March last year rail enthusiasts flocked to witness it officially reopen the Settle To Carlisle line.
It marked more than a year since journeys on the tracks were stopped after a landslide.
It now operates on special chartered trips.
