60163 Failure

Post by 35005CP on Sun Apr 21, 2013 7:37 pm

News I have seen that 60163 Failed last night. This is the Information that I have;

Tornado has failed in the Rhyl area whilst working the return Holyhead
Euston steam special.I understand 67002 has run light from Holyhead
to take the train forward currently running 3hrs late estimated to
to arrive at London Euston Approx 02.20 are there any engineering
blocks south of Crewe to-night if so could be interesting.

Does anyone know why Tornado failed?

Thanks

Andy

From the A1SLT website: "Tornado has been withdrawn from ‘The Cathedrals Express’ tour on Saturday 23rd November 2013. During our usual examination and monitoring procedures it was identified that we would need to replace two firebox stays ahead of the next operation. Due to their location it is not possible to complete this work in the time before the run. Tornado was due to enter winter maintenance at Barrow Hill on Monday 25th November and this will take place as scheduled. Tornado will be deputised on ‘The Cathedrals Express’ by Britannia. We apologise for the disappointment that this will no doubt bring to those who were looking forward to travelling with Tornado on this occasion. Keep an eye on www.a1steam.com for Tornado’s 2014 tours."

I believe the boiler may have been booked for a trip to Meiningen anyway, they turned it round very quickly last time.

Thanks
Andy
