A historic steam locomotive is to be moved by road after it became trapped on a railway line following damage to a bridge. Tornado was unable to leave the North Yorkshire Moors Railway after a bin lorry hit a bridge at Castleton Moor on Monday. The locomotive will now be moved by low-loader on Wednesday. It is due to attend an event at the Severn Valley Railway in Shropshire on Friday. Network Rail said all services on the line had been suspended, with a replacement bus service operating between Middlesbrough and Battersby.
