Some of you may be familiar with the A1 Steam Locomotive Trust's work to build 60163 Tornado, a newly-built Peppercorn class locomotive. The result is fantastic. In the US, a similar group has formed to build a new Pennsylvania Railroad T1, number 5550. They estimate it will cost 10 million US dollars to build it. I hope they're successful, I'm a bit surprised that not a single one of the originals was preserved, running or otherwise, all were scrapped. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PRR_T1 http://prrt1steamlocomotivetrust.org http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LNER_Peppercorn_Class_A1_60
Just watched the short vid with this BBC article, 60009 and 60163 look absolutely outstanding. For the opening of the new Borders Railway, 60009 will haul the royal train. I'm not sure if 60163 will be in the formation as shown in this video. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-34191233 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LNER_Class_A4_4488_Union_of_South_Africa https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LNER_Peppercorn_Class_A1_60163_Tornado
