Model Rail Live is a unique family event combining the best in British model railways with the opportunity to see, hear and even ride on real trains. Barrow Hill Roundhouse is the country's most atmospheric railway museum; home to a superb collection of restored steam, diesel and electric locomotives. For one weekend only it will also host some of the country's best model railways and guest locomotives - click here for more information.
Although Tornado will be working on the main line in Cornwall and Devon over the weekend, The A1 Steam Trust has a presence at Model Rail Live. Our incredibly hard-working merchandise team will be there with a stand, selling all types of Tornado merchandise from fridge magnets to coal models, postcards to T-shirts. Come along and have a look, we may have just what you need for that special Christmas present!
Barrow Hill Roundhouse has hosted Tornado several times already, she first visited during her main line trials and attended last year's Spring Gala there. The A1 Steam Trust held its annual convention in Chesterfield in 2009 and will be repeating the event there this October with 60163 at Barrow Hill to give The Trust's supporters unique access to their locomotive.
