A limited edition of 1965 Business Customised sheets, issued by Buckingham Covers, this sheet is another in their Railway themed sheets and is a celebration of the Tornado Steam Train. The sheet celebrates Britain’s first new steam train in over 50 years. On Wednesday 9 January 2008, 18 years of dreaming and a hard won £3 million came together as first lumps of coal were shovelled into the newly built A1 Pacific No 60163 Tornado by the widow of the man who designed the class.
