This video can be in seen in 720HD  for those of you who have a fast conection. For those of you who have a faster conection the 1080HD setting can also be used, but this all but a pipe dream for most of us. Hopfully we shall all soon have a very fast conection!

The coaching stock for this train had left Eastleigh with a diesel at just after midnight and headed for Southall Yard.  At Southall at about 03:12am Tornado took over the train till Peterborough. At Peterborough at about 05:10am the train reversed, and the diesel took over till March, with Tornado at the rear, getting to March at around 6am. Tornado was turned at Whitemoor junctions, watered and coaled be for rejoining its train and heading to Ely, to pick up its waiting passengers around 7:35 am and taking them to Bristol and back.

The train was not due back at March till around 23:27 that night and Tornado was not to get back to Southall till 4:55am nearly 29 hours after it left!
