| The LNER Peppercorn Class A1 60163 Tornado is a main-line steam locomotive built in Darlington, England. Completed in 2008, Tornado was the first such locomotive built in the United Kingdom since Evening Star, the last steam locomotive built by British Railways, in 1960. Tornado was conceived as an evolution of the LNER Peppercorn Class A1, incorporating improvements likely had steam continued, and changes for cost, safety, manufacturing and operational benefits, while replicating the original design's sound and appearance. This completely new-built locomotive is considered to be the 50th Peppercorn A1 ever built. Designed to meet modern safety and certification standards, Tornado runs on the UK rail network and on mainline-connected heritage railways.|
