The big blue steam machine

Over the years we have had many visits by Tornado, it spent a fair time with us a couple of years ago undergoing repairs.

Anyway, back in 2013 I think it was it visited us sporting a blue livery. The visit was memorable if only for the comments on the colour by many of the visitors.
You would have thought it was the end of steam as we know it to hear some people.

Well here it is in blue so you can make your own mind up about the colour.

Personally I quite liked it!
But for those who are in a state seeing it in blue here it is in green again from 2016.
