n Hello ..yea I know the Severn Valley Railway quite well  . Being born & raised in Wolverhampton  I remember it before they ripped the original tracks up & it was agoing concern as British Rail. My local  Heritage Railway  is now  the Great Western Steam Railway  , running between  Cheltenham Race course  & Broadway ....with the  possibility of re laying the track  all the way on to Stratford on Avon . 

 

I think the " Tornado " film was speeded up a bit ...as even on  Railtrack  national rail , her speed would be limited to  60--70 mph  for normal Express running...

Just take care& Stay well....   Pete .
