An app, designed and developed for the A1 Steam Locomotive Trust

Our mission: “To build and operate a Peppercorn class A1 Pacific steam locomotive for main line and preserved railway use.”

The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust, a registered charity, built Peppercorn class A1 Pacific No. 60163 Tornado, named after the RAF aircraft, at its Darlington Locomotive Works. Fitted with additional water capacity and the latest railway safety electronics, Tornado is fully equipped for today’s main line railway. The class A1s were designed by Arthur H Peppercorn for the London & North Eastern Railway and 49 were built in 1948/49 by British Railways. However, following dieselisation, all were scrapped by 1966.

This app allows you to keep up to date with the latest news surrounding No. 60163 Tornado, as well as it’s appearances on main line tours, heritage railways and steam galas across the UK.

You can also submit your own photos of Tornado, applying filters to enhance your photos for regular competitions and prize draws. You may even see your photos featured on the A1 Steam website, as well as within the app itself for others to see.
