Hornby R1169 OO Gauge Tornado Pullman Express train set

Hornby R1169 OO Gauge Tornado Pullman Express train set

Hornby Tornado train set depicting a New-built British Railways Class A1 Peppercorn loco. This set is new but having been on display comes with a great discount. No longer available from Hornby, we have tested the set (see video) and is perfect, the box has some crumpling at one end from storage. A great set of this modern Iconic loco.

Can be quite happily run as a modern image loco on excursions.

60163 Tornado is a mainline steam locomotive built in Darlington, England. Completed in 2008, Tornado was the first such locomotive built in the United Kingdom since Evening Star, the last steam locomotive built by British Railways in 1960. It is the only example of an LNER Peppercorn Class A1 locomotive in existence, the entirety of the original production batch having been scrapped without preservation. The locomotive's namesake is the Panavia Tornado, a combat aircraft flown by the Royal Air Force.

Construction of Tornado began in 1994, and was based at Darlington Works for most of the project, while numerous components such as the boiler were manufactured elsewhere. The project was financed through fundraising initiatives such as public donations and sponsorship deals; further funding came from hiring out Tornado itself for special rail services. Construction was completed in 2008, and full certification of the locomotive was achieved in January 2009. Having been designed with compliance to modern safety and certification standards, Tornado has been conducting passenger services on the UK rail network and on mainline-connected heritage railways since 2008.

Complete with an oval of track, plus siding and controller. These are great starter sets with lots of play value. This set but it is in exceptional condition. Box is a little shelfworn.
