Spitfire steam train coming through falconwood station

Judging by the relatively large amount of visitors this website receives via its post on the falconwood model railway1, it seems that there is much enthusiasm for steam trains in these parts, and so it gives great pleasure to announce2 that this train will most likely be passing through falconwood on it’s way to kent having left london bridge at 0955 on sunday september the 5th and due to arrive at faversham at 1145. The train is expected back at london bridge at 2000, but it’s coming back a different way.

I say most likely going through falconwood station as the journey is advertised as passing bexleyheath, which is on the same tfl line as our station, whether or or not the same goes for special services I’m not sure. As a provisional guestimate, and pending the actual departure times, I would reckon that the train might come through the falconwood at around 1015-1100.
