THE Princess Elizabeth chuffed its way through Oxford on a visit to the county.

The 6201 was built in 1933 at Crewe Works and was one of 13 Princess Royal Class locomotives.

Withdrawn in 1962, it was purchased by a private owner and the Princess Elizabeth Locomotive Society was formed to support the engine.

Since 1976 the locomotive has been back on track hauling rail tours and featured in the Diamond Jubilee pageant. Oxford was its last run before an overhaul at the end of the year.
