60163 A1 Pacific Tornado is in many ways a modern miracle. 60163 was built in 2008 and was the first mainline steam locomotive built in the UK since 92220 Evening star.
Tornado’s story is a very interesting one. Rather than repeat it here, I urge you to check out the A1 Steam Trusts web site (click here) to find out more.
Of course, 60163 Tornado is one of the steam locomotives nominated as the most famous (voting is now closed.)
Tornado was the subject of previous poll looking to find the most popular livery it had been painted in. The people’s choice was apple green!
I will leave you with a gallery of photograph’s of this 8P Pacific!
Thanks for reading folks!
