Good Day Martin i posted photos of Garratt 6029 showing the opening of the smoke box door it is under restoration in Canberra Australia. the shape of the front tender make that easier to open web site project 6029 to see what has been done. the Garratts in the UK would have had the same type of arrangement 

all the best


The Tornado Effect- The Story So Far

Posted by Shedmaster on July 14, 2014 at 21:53 2 Comments

Steamtube's presence and activity more or less corresponds with the appearance on the mainline of Peppercorn A1 60163 Tornado.

The very presence of this fine locomotive has excited many a young..and old!... enthusiast to venture out and get photographic evidence!


The following is as chronological a list of video clips of Tornado's activity since starting out.

All clips are from Steamtube members, who retain all copyright for their efforts......
