100mph tornado

Just seen it on the BBC news on TV.. no not a weather warning you fools lol.. you know i'm a train man!

The tornado has done 100mph on a night time journey to test its max speed and to assure the controllers at network rail that it can hit 70. It hit 100 and is the first steam engine to do so on the mainline network for decades.

 

Next thing you know we'll be bringing back slam doors...

The great paywall of financial greed blocked that article.

The other end of the scale..   put it on full screen and let it run. Very relaxing, especially in the snowy bits.

Worked for me, they must have a limit on "free visits" I guess, but google Northern Rail Slam Door trains and you'll see a few articles on it...
