The Winton Train

Earlier today the 'Winton Train' travelled from Harwich to Liverpool Street to commemorate the 1939 evacuation of Jewish children from Prague to London by Sir Nicholas Winton. The train today made up the last leg of the journey which started earlier in the week in Prague.

The train was hauled by the recently built A1 class locomotive 'Tornado', pictured here at Harwich International, next to a much older National Express Class 360!
