Steam Rail­way’s on­line com­mu­nity re­acts to the April Fool joke that ‘A1’ No. 60163 Tor­nado is to be re­named and renum­bered as No. 60164 Typhoon.

Gra­ham An­der­son It would look much bet­ter in BR lined black, just like City of Truro was a few years ago!

Jack Knight Go the whole hog: paint it red and call it Red Ar­row.

Alan Keller Af­ter Ire­land win­ning the Grand Slam at Twick­en­ham a few weeks ago, it has been de­cided to re­name Fly­ing Scots­man as Fly­ing Ir­ish­man for three months.

Si­mon Don­ald They had me on that! To be fair, I do think the BR blue is the best colour it’s been in. I’m not a fan of the LNER Ap­ple green BR livery it’s cur­rently sport­ing, though just hav­ing Tor­nado in the first place more than makes up for it.

Martin Sims I was only fooled by the renaming, as a lot of lo­co­mo­tives have been re­named over the years but have kept their orig­i­nal num­bers.

Jack Chat­field Not all April Fools jokes are fake, re­mem­ber.
