HuwG BS: Another new steam loco! (22) RE: BS: Another new steam loco! 21 Nov 09

Ooops, clean forgot about the Duke. Disappointing in BR service, it took the restoration people to spot the design or construction flaws. It now easily belts out 3,000 hp. (The Thompson A2 class did the same, and the Duchesses supposedly recorded 3,300 hp on rather contrived tests with the designer, Stanier, in attendance. I don't know what the new Peppercorn locomotive "Tornado" does, but it is limited to 90 mph in Britain.)
