HUNDREDS of interested onlookers flocked to see the Tornado steam locomotive pass through a snow-covered Times Territory at the weekend.

The engine is the first main line steam locomotive to be built in the UK for some 50 years.

Despite cold weather and a 45 minute delay, throngs of people gathered at Welwyn North, WGC, Hatfield and Potters Bar to see her passage.
