60163 Tornado is a main-line steam locomotive built in Darlington, England.Completed in 2008, Tornado was the first such locomotive built in the United Kingdom since Evening Star, the last steam locomotive built by British Railways, in 1960.Designed to meet modern safety and certification standards, Tornado runs on the UK rail network and on mainline-connected heritage railways.
The locomotive was built by the A1 Steam Locomotive Trust, a charitable trust founded in 1990 to build Tornado and possibly further locomotives.Tornado was conceived as an evolution of the LNER Peppercorn Class A1 class, incorporating improvements likely had steam continued, and changes for cost, safety, manufacturing and operational benefits, while replicating the original design's sound and appearance.Tornado, completely new-built, is considered the 50th Peppercorn A1, numbered next in the class after 60162, Saint Johnstoun, built in 1949.
Tornado moved under her own power for the first time on 29 July 2008 at Darlington, and then spent two months at the preserved Great Central Railway double-track tourist railway in Loughborough, where she was tested up to 60 mph (97 km/h) and operated her first passenger train.Tornado then moved to the National Railway Museum (NRM) in York for three test runs on the main line up to 75 mph (121 km/h).After repainting into LNER Apple Green, Tornado was approved for main-line passenger operation.On 31 January 2009 she hauled her first passenger trip on the main line, The Peppercorn Pioneer, from York to Newcastle and back.By hauling various A1 Trust railtours, charters and other activities, Tornado will begin to recoup the estimated GBP800,000 debt from the project, which cost around GBP3 million.
The new Hornby model is represented in the familiar Apple Green of the early British Railways colour scheme.
