CAPTAIN Tom Moore has had a train named after him to mark his 100th birthday.

Great Western Railway (GWR) has honoured him after raising over £29 million for the NHS.

The train has been named after him following requests from GWR staff and the public, and will re-enter service tomorrow, Mr Moore’s birthday.

Mr Moore walked 100 laps of his garden, with the fundraiser going viral.

GWR runs services through Oxfordshire.
