Trainspotting hobby 80 years older than thought

The National Railway Museum has found evidence of the first trainspotter - way back in 1861. It was a 14-year-old jotting down locomotive numbers as trains came and went from Paddington Station. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about this discovery is that said trainspotter was a girl. I think this makes trainspotting thoroughly gender-neutral!
