Tornado blows through Whitchurch 2012-04-04

Locomotive 60163 Tornado is the newest steam locomotive to be built – a result of a special project by a group of enthusiasts that took 19 years to see the brand new ‘Peppercorn’ A1 Pacific loco take to the rails.

It is hauling a Cathedrals Express Excursion from Peterborough to Salisbury and back. The video is of its return journey, taken from the temporary pedestrian bridge to the east of the new bridge that is under construction. It is the first community video shot with the IT Library camcorder. Another steam train is scheduled for 12 April 2012 (see event listing HERE)
