Southeastern Railway today (Wednesday 6th February 2013) unveiled their latest Javelin train – newly-named after 22-times Paralympic medalist Dame Sarah Storey.
Dame Sarah, looking bonny in a striking white coat, arrived a few minutes later than planned, having crossed London in the rain, leaving travellers on the 16.40pm baffled as to why so many photographers and staff were at St Pancras International‘s Platform 13.
Sarah’s smiley signature is emblazoned on one engine and she was happy to pose next to it alongside a number of Southeastern drivers, on-train and HQ staff:
Dashing to the front carriages after the official photo calls Dame Sarah and her entourage enjoyed a trip on the train – which left perfectly on time.
