newly built Peppercorn A1 Pacific 60163 'Tornado' was obviously the main attraction

LMS 5XP 5690 Leander usually based at the East Lancs Railway made its first
visit to the GCR for the event.
Completing the lineup were:- SR LN 850 Lord Nelson and 70013 Oliver Cromwell.
GWR Large Prairie 4141, GCR O4 63601 and BR 2MT 78019.
A big thank you to everyone involved for making this
years event so enjoyable
and to the 'A1 Steam Locomotive Trust' for their mammoth achievement, 'Congratulations'
