Tornado returns

A legend storms into town

Batten down the hatches, Peppercorn Class A1 60163 “Tornado is returning to the East Lancashire Railway for the first time since 2010. The legendary locomotive, Britain’s newest steam engine built in 2008, will be celebrating her 10th Birthday with us at a dedicated event.

Despite her youth, Tornado has already become an icon, finding fame in “Top Gear” and the 2017 family feature film “Paddington 2”, as well as being the first locomotive to reach 100MPH in 50 years, so it comes as no surprise that we are so excited to welcome her back!

Tickets include a Full Line Return Return trip on Tornado and unlimited travel on other standard services throughout the day. Tickets must be booked in advance. No concessionary fares are available. 

Adult £20.00
Child (3 - 17 Years) £10.00
