Tornado (Sudrian Chronicles) by Galaxy-Afro Tornado (Sudrian Chronicles) by Galaxy-Afro
The youngest steam engine in the world, Tornado is the only surviving example of his class, being the LNER Peppercorn A1 class, of which none of the original examples exist, all having been scrapped, with not one preserved. The first steam ^engine ever built in Britain since Evening Star was completed for British Railways in 1960, Tornado is also the most modern steam engine in the United Kingdom, having been built with modern technology inside of his cab. Often rented out for excursions, Tornado often visits Sodor, where he became a sort of "little brother" to Gordon, who also shares LNER heritage. Due to his status as the youngest steam engine in the world, he often counts on engines such as Gordon to tell him of how the world was before he was built. In 2017, Tornado became the first steam engine to run at over 100mph on the East Coast main line, something of which was last done in 1967.

Yep, Tornado will be making appearances in the Sudrian Chronicles. Considering how he was just built in 2008, there's not that much to go off of for his bio for now, maybe when I write his stories on Sodor sometime. :shrug: ~ Afro
