Tornado Tastic!

I've never seen so many people out for a steam special ever in all my years of snapping train - which is about 30 years. Maybe the end of steam in 1968 bought out more people?

No. 60163 'Tornado', the A1 Steam Locomotive Trust's brand new steam locomotive, is captured here blasting up the grade at Lyne near Virginia Water with Steam Dreams 'Valentine's Day Special' circular tour from Waterloo Victoria on a beautiful crisp Saturday 14 February 2009.

The 'tech' for those that like that sort of thing:
