In 1990 a group of people came together to share an extraordinary ambition - to construct a brand new Peppercorn A1 Pacific. They formed The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust and after nineteen years of incredible effort that locomotive, No. 60163 Tornado, moved under its own power for the first time in 2008. Tornado is now fulfilling the dream, hauling specials on the mainline and giving joy to thousands of passengers and linesiders who want to witness the legend in action.

In this image it is seen at the Nene Valley Railway.

Amazing feat, to construct a brand new one. My sister lived in Market Deeping but we never did get to the Nene Valley Railway.
