Extract of details of bridge strike from the 60163 Tornado on Twitter site [published 12 March 2018].

1 of 2 - Today there has been a major bridge strike at Castleton Moor on the Whitby branch. The bridge was hit by a refuse lorry and has been significantly damaged as has the track. The route will likely be closed for several days and means Tornado cannot leave the NYMR by rail.

2 of 2 - Although we're reluctant to move Tornado by road, we don't want to let down the SVR and those wishing to see her this weekend. We are working hard to move Tornado to Bridgnorth before the start of the gala on Friday. An outline plan for road movement is in place.

It includes the erroneous claim it was the first new steam engine built since the 1960s forgetting David Lloyd George built in 1979!!

Reported fresh this very April morning.

Steam locomotive No.60163 ‘Tornado’ apparently to be renamed to ‘Typhoon'.
Even includes a photograph.

The overseas tour looks impressive.

I was assuming the original poster (and everyone else) realised that.
