On its way from Shoeburyness to Portsmouth. Coast to (south) coast, then.
The locomotive is 'Mayflower' in striking green livery, which may lead younger watchers to connect it with Henry the Green Engine, from the 'Thomas the Tank Engine' series. Correct number of wheels, too.

Next steam? Harringay station, Sat 24 June about 0810. Ooh, it's 'Flying Scotsman'. Form an orderly queue...
[EDIT] Date changed to Fri 23 June, time now uncertain, maybe about 0810. Also Fri 30 June morning, again 'Flying Scotsman'.
PS The rail strike on Wed 31 does not involve signalling staff, so the train should run.
SoTo too at 9.34. Thanks for the alert.
