“DB Cargo UK Ltd is proud to have sup­ported the A1 Steam Lo­co­mo­tive Trust in its am­bi­tion to run Tor­nado at 90mph. We look for­ward to work­ing with the trust in its fu­ture as­pi­ra­tions to run the lo­co­mo­tive at higher speed on pas­sen­ger trains, and will be part of the next stage in that process. “We’d like to thank all our staff and train crew for ev­ery­thing that hap­pened this evening, which was highly suc­cess­ful. “It rep­re­sents a sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone and achieve­ment, both for DB Cargo and the A1 Steam Lo­co­mo­tive Trust, af­ter many months of plan­ning - and fol­low­ing process with the Rail Safety and Stan­dards Board, Net­work Rail and other af­fected stake­hold­ers. It’s been a col­lab­o­ra­tion across the rail­way; this is an ex­am­ple of how the rail­way can work to­gether. “It’s also a step in the right di­rec­tion in en­sur­ing that steam can con­tinue to op­er­ate on an in­creas­ingly busy mod­ern rail­way.”
