Bio

The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust was formed in 1990 to build and operate a Peppercorn A1 locomotive for use on the main line and preservation railways. Tornado visited Sodor in 2009. As he had only ever pulled excursion trains, he wasn't used to being on a normal working railway, resulting in a hiccup or two during his visit. James is slightly jealous of Tornado's popularity following a Top Gear appearance, but soon learns that fame isn't everything.
