TikTok star Francis Bourgeois, well-known for his trainspotting videos, visited Blenheim Palace earlier this week.

In the video, which has been viewed more than 3million times, Bourgeois films himself driving a mini-steam train on a mission to honk its horn 100 times as it goes under a tunnel at the historic palace.

London-born Bourgeois has been a lifelong trainspotter but was bullied while at school for his love of trains and only started sharing videos about his hobby on the internet last year.

Since then, the TikToker has grown a huge fanbase of 1.4 million followers who love to watch his excitable reactions to all things locomotive.

Blenheim Palace’s train, called Winston, is a miniature train which runs back and forth between the Palace and the Walled Garden.

It costs £1 to ride the miniature steamer.

The TikToker posted the video to his account on Wednesday and it has already received more than 400,000 likes.
