Today's very silly question- but can I be the only one asking it?

When are we likely to have the Tornado on SVR metals?

Judging by past comments from the Tornado team - not very soon. I think they would rather put their energy and finances into using their brand new steam engine on the main line than on preserved lines.

Sorry Sad

Taken from Tornado website:
Our Mission
'To build and operate a Peppercorn class A1 Pacific steam locomotive for mainline and preserved railway use.'

Since the SVR is one of the leading preserved railways in the country and has a mainline connection, it seems that its just the matter of time before it does visit?

Quite understandable as geographically the NYMR is far more appropriate than the SVR.

It's only in Apple Green for a short while and it would be nice to pair it with the SVR's LNER rake whilst the opoortunity is there . The question will be cost and goodness knows what the steaming fee is like on it

According to what's in Herirage Railway magazine, Tornado is to visit the SVR later this year.

Yes, Grosmont is easy to get to by rail from York and Kidderminster is not.

Must be right - its in HR... Makes sense tho...

A fee to match the engines size. According to an NRM explainer, a percentage of each fee is taken for a green charity so that the loco will remain eco-friendly. Whatever next.

I was not referring to the ease of access. The A1 happens to be a kinda LNER design. As such, it is far more appropriate for it to visit the Moors rather than the Valley where a mix of LMS and GWR (and BR Std) types are far more appropriate.

You're kidding, right? The hottest, most newsworthy engine on the planet and you don't want it here? Together with the shedloads of people who will come to see it, phot. it and ride behind it?

Bring it on! Cool

My heart is with The Captain but my head is with Smoothy.

When before did one loco ever stir up such partisan feelings?

Yes -- agreed in general -- I doubt if an A1 has ever been anywhere near Kidder, but LNER locos were certainly seen on the Valley during the war -- e.g. J25s based in the area for freight work, B12s on ambulance trains.
