TORNADO, the UK’s newest steam locomotive, called into Bury St Edmunds’ train station yesterday.

The 60163 Tornado, which has featured on an episode of Top Gear, was hauling The Cathedrals Express which offered its passengers travel to and from York, a rare treat for people in East Anglia who, for the first time, were able to board from Bury, Ipswich and Colchester.

Marcus Robertson, Cathedrals Express chairman, said: “It is always really exciting to bring a steam train to a new route.”
