Following Sefer Torah

Question:
Is there basis to follow a sefer torah when being brought to the bima and when being brought back?
Answer:

Yes, this is brought by the Rama to O:C 149, that when the Sefer Torah passes by someone, they should follow until it reaches it’s destination. This is brought by the Mishna Brura ibid. s”k 7. It seems that this refers only to someone who the Torah passes by him in close proximity.
