    Cool For STEAM TRAIN buffs.

    Hi All,
    I watched an fascinating short documentary featuring the 'Tornado - Steam Engine' via BBCi (Available until 12/6)

    The new A1 class steam engine Tornado tries to achieve 100mph on the main line. The secret speed attempt will be made in the dead of night. If it tops the ton it will be the first time in 50 years steam has gone this fast. Tornado was built over two decades and financed by enthusiasts who want to show steam has a viable future on Britain's railways. Does the 'Tornado do it ?

    Pleas to those who have already watched it no spoilers!!

    Geoff.

    For steam engine buffs, surely. I spent a fair chunk of Sunday trying to photograph the Flying Scotsman, so perhaps I qualify! I also saw Tornado a few years ago, when it made an appearance on the Stirling to Alloa line.

    Hi All,
    Meddle,
    The nearest I have ever come to being a buff was when my father took the family out to Bewdley many years ago loved it have always liked Steam Trains but never can be described as a fanatic but just great for anybody wanting a day out and to experience what steam travel used to be like...
