The 66-tonne Great Northern Railway Stirling Single locomotive – dating from 1870 – arrived at Waterloo's former Eurostar terminal in June in readiness for the stage show which opened last month.

A 1000-seater theatre has been created on the platforms of Waterloo's disused international station.

The Railway Children is now booking till 2 January 2011.
