Posted on another forum, not by me I may add.
Spoke to a DBC traction inspector at Peterborough last night and he told me that it will leave the NVR with just it’s support coach, pick him up at Peterborough station and then go for a 75mph run to Doncaster Roberts Road where it will attach to a coaching set plus Class 67. With the 67 on the back, it will then do another 75mph run to Northallerton, then dragged back by the 67 to either York or Doncaster.

He also told me that after it’s first trip over the S&C in February, it then goes to Barrow Hill for heavy maintenance.

Tornado is expected at the Wensleydale Railway after it has worked the North Briton on 9th February.

It has public runs on the 15th,16th and 17th February.
