A3 No. 60103 Flying Scotsman and A1 No. 60163 Tornado will be heading to the Barrow Hill Roundhouse in September 2017 to reopen the centre after a £1.2 million restoration.
The restoration is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and is restoring the former Staveley Midland shed at the centre in Derbyshire.

Also set to feature at the event will be a working replica of Stephenson’s Rocket, which will be visiting from the National Railway Museum, in York.

Tornado is Britain’s newest steam locomotive. Completed in 2008, it has visited many different heritage railways including the East Lancashire Railway. Tornado is seen mostly on the national network, hauling steam tours. The locomotive is owned by the A1 Steam Locomotive Trust and is operated on behalf of the trust by DB Cargo UK.
