Hard to realise its brand new :p :D

Thankyou IanM. Excellent video clip of the 'Peppercorn Pioneer' run (for the Covenantors). £3million Pounds well spent! Even more so when you consider that the National Railway Museum has, so far, spent nearly this amount on 4472 'Flying Scotsman' since 2005 (including the initial £2.2million pound purchase price).£742,000 pounds has already been spent 'to date' on the major overhaul work and completion is not now expected until 2010 (havng slipped already from 2008 and then 2009).Therefore the overall cost will be very much in excess of 'Tornado's £3million pounds!
