A TORNADO will be hitting WGC this weekend.

But don't worry this is not a weather forecast, merely news of a steam train storming through Times Territory.

Tornado, the �3m first new mainline steam locomotive to be built in Britain for almost 50 years, will haul the Yorkshire Pullman from London King's Cross to York tomorrow (Saturday), departing at 9.18am.

She is expected to pass through Times Territory - including Potters Bar, Brookmans Park, Welham Green, Hatfield, WGC, Welwyn North, and Knebworth stations - from about 9.40am, at speeds up to 75mph.

It will be Tornado's second journey through the area, following her historic first trip on February 7.

A spokesman for the A1 Steam Locomotive Trust urged people not to wander illegally onto the track to take pictures, after previous trips had been disrupted by such acts.
