Tornado Rips through Durham (Again!)

New-Build Peppercorn A1 Pacific 60163 ‘Tornado’ slices neatly through Durham station on the northbound leg of the ‘Peppercorn Pioneer’ on the 31/01/2009. Sorry about the wobbles – caused by the unexpected appearance of a head at a fairly late stage in the proceedings. 🙂

34067 ‘Tangmere’ at speed through Chelmsford station. The Cathedrals Express.

This is the ‘Southern Region West Country Class and Battle of Britain Class steam locomotive, 34067 ‘Tangmere’ at full steam heading north through Chelmsford Railway Station (UK) on December 8th 2009 with the Cathedrals Express Carol Concert Special to Ely Cambridgeshire for an afternoon carol concert in the Cathedral there. Designed by Oliver Bulleid, 34067 entered service in September 1947 and was withdrawn in November 1963. Out of a batch of 110 locomotives 20 still exist in preservation but 34067 is the only one certified for mainline metals use. Tangmere was a late replacement for A4 60019 ‘Bittern’ on this railtour as that locomotive has route availability issues on the line between Ipswich and Bury St. Edmunds. This is a first for me.. never seen Tangmere before.

Historical Steam Engine UP 844 Shiloh Limited rolls through Omaha March 25, 2012

Steam Locomotive No. 844 (Union Pacific 844 Shiloh Limited) rolls by my house, in Bellevue, Nebraska, the morning of March 25, 2012. It is on its way to North Little Rock, Arkansas, to arrive there on March 30. On Saturday, March 31 and Sunday, April 1, the train will be on display from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm and the Steam Souvenir Car will be open. This was such an exciting moment on our sunny Sunday morning. This is part of the Union Pacific’s celebration of 150 years of history. At the end of this train, you will see historical Civil War relics… watch closely. “4-8-4 Northern”, I believe, is the type of locomotive. It has 4 pilot wheels, 8 drivers, and 4 trailer wheels. I believe Alco was the builder. History site: Other videos of this train Please subscribe! And catch me on Twitter:
