I was lucky enough to have a hurl on the 'Aberdonian' (including two spells on the footplate of 60163). However, no camera can capture the sensory experience of steaming into the sunset west of Dundee at 75 mph, with all that rattling, hissing, whistling and flickering flame! This image was taken at lower speed as West Coast Railways' Operations Manager, Peter Walker (formerly a Traction Inspector at Eastfield MPD), eases Tornado on to the Ferryhill turntable in Aberdeen on 7th September 2019.
