Hornby R3060 Class A1 'Tornado' in BR Apple Green, RailRoad Range

In 1990 a group of like-minded people came together in the belief that they could construct from new, a Peppercorn Class A1 Pacific locomotive. The first steam locomotive built in the United Kingdom since 'Evening Star' in 1960 and it would be built to meet modern safety and certification standards to enable it to run on mainline connected heritage railways. After a period of nearly 20 years the dream became a reality on the 29th July 2008 when locomotive No. 60163 'Tornado' moved under its own power at Darlington.

In the relatively short period of time in which 'Tornado' has been in operation, the locomotive has built up a large fan base because wherever the locomotive goes huge crowds flock to see this marvel of determination and fortitude.
