"Royal Tornado"

It was very exciting to see 60163, Tornado, named by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall - I am delighted I got to see it, and many thanks to Tony Gee for the lift, there and back, to the event.

I can't help but wonder what will happen next - something pointed out to by several people: lots of the A1 Trust members are getting on in years, and if a new locomotive new build was announced, most would never see the day it would steam.

Perhaps a few younger members might like to take up the reins. I would certainly like to get involved in recreating a piece of British history.

Here's a link to my Tornado videos on Youtube, for the time being:


Until next time - which will be more modelling, I hope!
