'Tornado' Locomotive Sets Off Fire Alarm

UK Railway News

It seems that a few members of the public were a bit too quick off the mark in phoning the fire services as they passed Edinburgh's Waverley station on Sunday 5th July 2015.


 At 3pm in the afternoon, three fire engines were dispatched to the station in response to calls from the public stating that they believed a building was on fire on Waverley Bridge.



It soon transpired that the 'fire' was a false alarm.  The smoke had come from the steam locomotive 'Tornado' as it passed through the station.

Still.  Better to be safe than sorry.
