The age of steam came back to life on Saturday as a famous locomotive puffed its way along the Tyne Valley.

As shown in this footage from Ian Wylie from Corbridge, the LNER Peppercorn Class A1 60163 Tornado steamed through the district hauling the North Briton train, as part of a tour across the country.

Starting from London King's Cross, the train travelled to Carlisle before heading along the Tyne Valley line, passing passed through Haltwhistle, Haydon Bridge, Hexham, Riding Mill, Stocksfield and Prudhoe.

Based on a 1940s design, the Tornado was built in Darlington between 1994 and 2008 after enthusiasts realised the original production batch had all been scrapped.

The A1 Steam Locomotive Trust, which now owns and operates the train, raised £3 million to get the work started 25 years ago this month.

The train appeared in a 2009 episode of Top Gear, where it raced a Jaguar and a Vincent Black Shadow motorcycle from London to Edinburgh, narrowly coming in second.

In 2017, it became the first steam train to reach 100 mph on British tracks after more than 50 years.
