60163 Tornado

Not exactly a preserved locomotive, but a new build of what should have been saved. A Peppercorn A1 locomotive which takes the number of what would have been next in the series.

60163 is seen here coming out of the tunnel into Kings Cross Station on the first run to London.
7 February 2009.

60163 is seen running into Kings Cross Station platform quite late due to the amount of interest at the line side on the trip from Darlington.
7 February 2009.

Hugh crowds waited at Kings Cross for Tornado to Arrive on 7 February 2010. I don't suppose anyone would have believe the amount of interest there would be.
