TORNADO, Britain's newest steam locomotive, will be paying another - fleeting - visit to Huntingdon and St Neots this evening.

The replica A1 Pacific (4-6-2) locomotive, which was completed in Darlington last year, will be hauling passengers from York to London on the East Coast main line.

It is expected to pass through Huntingdon station shortly before 7.50pm and St Neots around 10 minutes later.

Mark Allatt, chairman of the A1 Steam Locomotive Trust, which built it, said it would be returning next week, tarrying in the meantime at First Capital Connect's Hornsey depot in north London.
