About 60163 Tornado

LNER Peppercorn locomotive number 60163 was constructed by A1 Steam Locomotive Trust between 1994 and 2008. Whilst many East Coast Mainline steam locomotives were preserved, all 49 A1 steam engines were scrapped. The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust constructed Tornado from scratch with a number of performance improvements based on Arthur Peppercorn’s designs. Tornado’s TOPS number is 98863, running as 60163. Since 1967, Tornado is the first steam locomotive in the UK to run at 100mph. Tornado was built in Darlington and is often based at Stewart’s Lane depot, London, where it often works DB operated Belmond British Pullman rail charters.

Tickets for this railtour can be purchased on the UK Railtours website, who are booking agents for this trip.
