It's great to see that some people keep these good old steam engines rolling.

I read that new Peppercorn A1 Pacific "Tornado" was in steam today at Darlington for the very first time - who will be the first to provide us with a picture on the site?

Quite right Tornado was in steam today, 1st August 2008, but the occasion was not the first steamimg, that happened a few months ago, but instead was her first movement under her own power. Although only a few yards it was witnessed by only a few spectators.
Oh and I saw it!!! Well it was on the national news on BBC.
She is due to move to the Great Central Railway shortly for running in that will, when the railway is closed to the public, include 60mph spells.
It's a long way from Dawlish but we shall have to see.

Even further from Gothenburg! Although my son lives fairly near to Loughborough and it would be a great excuse for me to visit - do you know roughly when she will be there?
