Swindon had the pleasure of Tornado passing through enroute to Cardiff. Paddington-Reading-Swindon-Chippenham-Filton-Severn Tunnel-Cardiff. Passing time ~ 1150, 30 mins. late due to a freight train failing. First steamer of the year through Swindon, although if you listened to the local media, you would think it was the first steam train since 1965.
