Prototype: 

For several years Hornby have been at the forefront of adding the dimension of sound to the world of model railways by having locomotives equipped with sound decoders.

In 1990 a group of enthusiasts began building a Peppercorn Class A1 Pacific locomotive from scratch. After nearly 20 years, locomotive No. 60163 'Tornado' moved under its own power at Darlington on the 29th July 2008.

The 4-6-2 wheel configured locomotive is 72' 11 3/4" (22.24m) long, 9' 2 7/8" (2.82m) wide, 13' (3.96m) high, capable of 100mph and 'Tornado' is at present certificated to 75mph. Modern construction techniques produced a strong stable frame and a few adjustments were made to the tender, water and coal capacity during the build. Since 2008 this popular locomotive attracts large crowds, wanting to see this marvel of determination and fortitude, wherever 'Tornado' appears.

The locomotive has worn various liveries, 'Workshop' grey, LNER Apple Green, BR Brunswick Green and BR Express Blue since 2012 meaning that 'Tornado' has carried the same four liveries as all the original A1 Pacific locomotives.

Please note Some controllers only offer ‘toggle’ control for function activation. i.e. Once the function key is pressed it remains ‘On’. duration, the function key will need to be pressed again to return the controller to ‘Function Off’ status before it is possible to activate the same function again. e.g. the Hornby ‘Select’ operates in this manner while the Hornby ‘Elite’ has both ‘toggle’ and ‘momentary’ control of functions, which is ideal for controlling both ‘Play Once’ and ‘Looped’ spot sounds.
