Sun 1 April 2018: A Day Trip East Lancs Railway to ride on Tornado with Johnsons CoachesBook Now
Batten down the hatches, Peppercorn Class A1 60163 'Tornado' is returning to the East Lancashire Railway for the first time since 2010. Ride behind the famous Peppercorn A1 engine from Bury Bolton Street station on an unforgettable 24 mile return ride, passing through tunnels, over viaducts and past the scenic Irwell Valley.
After a group of people came together in 1990 with the ambition to construct a brand new Peppercorn A1 Pacific, after 19 years of effort, Tornado moved under its own steam for the first time in 2008. Marking its 10th anniversary, the iconic 21st century steam locomotive Tornado steams into the East Lancashire Railway to mark the occasion with this dedicated event.
Despite her youth, Tornado has already become an icon, finding fame in Top Gear and the 2017 famly feature film Paddington 2, as well as being the first locomotive to reach 100MPH in 50 years.
Tickets include a full line return trip on Tornado and unlimited travel on other standard services throughout the day.
