Wow, that's scary stuff. Why was it going so fast? It looked like it had pasenger cars attached.
Beautiful engine....just need one of them on the Seven Valley Railway for me next time I go there! nothing beats seeing the sight of that steam when your on or it passes you can't help but put a smile on your face and seeing the look on childrens faces
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 .
