The Head of Steam Museum at North Road Station, just yards from where Tornado
was constructed, is holding a special exhibition dedicated to the story behind a 21st Century legend. This is an intimate account of the building of the Peppercorn class A1 60163 Tornado
. The first main line steam locomotive to be built in the UK since the 1960s, Tornado’s
importance to Darlington and the North East is explored for the first time in this major exhibition. With artifacts on loan from The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust, ‘The Tornado
Story’ is told by those who made it!
