Peppercorn class 'A1' Pacific 60163 'Tornado'


Arthur H Peppercorn was the last Chief Mechanical Engineer of the London and North Eastern Railway (LNER), and his A1 design was the last in the line of express steam locos for the East Coast Main line. Forty-nine were built in 1948 and 1949, but all were withdrawn by 1966, replaced by diesels after only a 16 year life. A Trust was set up in 1990 with the aim of building a modern A1. Eighteen years and 3m later, the dream came to fruition in Darlington, when Tornado steamed in July 2008.

'Tornado', captured at Carlisle on 24th June 2010, following a record-breaking ascent of Shap.
