Tornado Steams In – Celebrity steam locomotive No 60163 Tornado will be paying a special visit from 27 May to 4 June.
The iconic a 21st century steam locomotive, the first main line steam locomotive built in the UK since 1960, will be hauling special trains from Sheringham to Holt and return.
Tornado made headlines as it steamed for the first time in 2008. Since then, the engine has continued to impress, hauling Royal Trains and appearing on the big screen in Paddington 2 as well as on numerous television programmes including BBC Top Gear’s famous “Race to The North”.
Tornado is also the fastest steam engine to run since the 1960s, reaching 100mph on a test train in 2017 but will be running at a more sedate 25 miles hour through the beautiful North Norfolk countryside. The engine spends most of its time hauling premier excursions on the mainline, so grab your tickets for this rare chance to ride behind one of Britain’s most famous locomotives.
This is one of the locomotive’s first appearances following an overhaul that has kept the engine out of service for fifteen months, so tickets are expected to sell fast.
Tickets will include a reserved seat for a trip from Sheringham to Holt and return with time at Holt Station to take photographs of the express engine.
