At last, a Saturday with warm spring sunshine saw new-build A1 4-6-2 No 60163 Tornado passing through Crewe on a Cathedrals Express from Euston to Holyhead, on the same day as the last and most powerful Pacific built by British Railways, No 71000 Duke of Gloucester was on public display a few yards away in the Crewe Heritage Centre. The opportunity to photograph these two iconic locomotives during one outing was not to be missed.
