The first steam locomotive to be built in Britain in almost half a century is set to return to the main line this week after undergoing a major overhaul in Darlington. Here's an explanation of what happened to the Tornado:
The first steam locomotive to be built in Britain in almost half a century has taken to the tracks again following a major overhaul. The Tornado is at Locomotion - The National Railway Museum at Shildon - in County Durham for the next few days undergoing mileage runs before she heads to Edinburgh.
An historic locomotive, which was restored in our region, will soon return to its home across the Atlantic.
The Dominion of Canada is still on display at The National Railway Museum at Shildon following a major exhibition to reunite it with the other surviving A4 engines. Preparations for its departure will begin over the next few days.
The manager of a heritage railway is warning that a special type of coal for steam engines is in short supply.
Experts at The North Yorkshire Railway say 'steam coal' has become rare and expensive. As Jonny Blair reports, a shortage wouldn't just affect locomotives.
